Edwin K. Hill
Dr. Hill lived his early childhood on a dry land ranch, assembling complicated contraptions from the boneyard of retired farming equipment and constructing carpentry projects that utilized scraps of wood and rusty nails.
School opened up new vistas for him as he learned to work with power tools and a variety of new materials and developed his artistic awareness. Entering college at Eastern Washington University with a basketball scholarship in his pocket and a dream of engineering in mind, he soon found his way to the industrial arts department. There was little doubt in the direction of his future when it became clear that he could continue his love affair with hands-on creations and enjoy the benefits of the education profession.
Throughout his career he taught industrial arts and education at all levels, from elementary grades through university graduate study. His masters and doctorate degrees, both from Washington State University, are in education.
