Opportunities at MASW
There is no better way to celebrate that special occasion, holiday, retirement, anniversary, or birthday than to give a Marc Adams School of Woodworking gift certificate. It's easy to do! Just call 317-535-4013 and ask for Paula. Tell her the dollar amount and, if possible, the class choice (to assure a spot). She will send you (or the recipient) a very attractive gift certificate and copy of our brochure.

JOHN C. COOLIDGE MEMORIAL AWARD
John C. Coolidge attended MASW from 1996 until his death in August 2003 and was well known for the rubber chicken that adorned his shop apron and the jester hat that he wore nearly every day. John was from a well-established eastern family–a family that included a president of the United States. He was an attorney from Orange, MA and worked very hard in local charities. John was a great friend, a great leader and a true torchbearer for MASW. It is with great honor that the Masters of the school, most of whom knew John, have banded together to present an annual award to someone who has completed the Masters program and/or has excelled in the craft or overcome adversity/personal challenges or gone beyond the norm to help make MASW the leader in the world of craft schools. Recipients are chosen based on perseverance, effort, attitude and ability and receive a crystal plaque.
This year we are pleased to present this special award to Rachelle Kihlstrum.
THE ROGER CLIFFE MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
Roger Cliffe was a family man, college professor, author, avid pool player, woodworker and a very dear friend. Roger died suddenly from a heart attack in 2001 while riding a bike. He had a doctorate degree in Industrial Arts and was a teacher with distinction at Northern Illinois University. Each summer during break, Roger would teach as many as 5 workshops, which almost always sold out. He was a born teacher who had a great impact on all he met; so much that a group of our alumni wanted to start a foundation in his memory. Today the RCMF has provided help to well over 100 students and interns to the tune of over $200,000 worth of aid.
Through generous and unselfish gifts, the RCMF continues to support woodworkers of all ages, race and nationality in ways that help students fulfill their dreams and improve their lives as woodworkers, which will someday improve our craft.
The RCMF is a public charity organized as a 501c(3) corporation. All donations to the RCMF are tax deductible to the full extent as allowed by the law. If you know someone who could benefit or if you would like to help the cause, please contact:
