Ed Ufford


Eddie (Ed) Ufford currently teaches Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and Woodworking for high school students in Richland, Washington.  Utilizing the national STEM Guitar project curriculum, he infused STEM guitar and ukulele building into his classes and in 2015, Eddie received the “Crystal Apple Award” for Outstanding Educator. To date, his students have built over 105 electric guitars and 75 acoustic tenor ukuleles. Eddie dreams that one day he will learn how to play something other than the riff to “Ghost Riders in the Sky” and “House of the Rising Sun.”  Until then, he takes comfort in knowing that he shares some of the same eccentricities of Leo Fender—playing pinochle on Saturday nights, obsessed with work, and not a player of the guitar.
