WILLARD (WILL) LERUMS is a proud Hoosier and full-time staff member at MASW. Inspired by his grandfather’s love for woodworking, he began assisting in designing and constructing furniture projects at a young age. Attending Indiana University Bloomington, Willard developed a Design-Build Management major thru the Individualized Major Program. Graduating in 2014, he moved to Chicago and began working for a commercial design-build company as a project engineer. He collaborated with project owners, architects, engineers, and designers in order to manage a crew of in-house carpenters, fabricators, and outside contractors to deliver high-end design build solutions. Willard was introduced to the school in 2016 by his mother, a fellow student, and interned in 2017. He also loves sharing the outdoors camping with friends and family.
