Thanks, Jean!

On December 31, 2017, Jean McLaughlin retired as Penland’s executive director, a position she had held since May, 1998. During her two decades at Penland School of Crafts, Jean led the school through a remarkable time of change, growth, and stabilization.

This is a slideshow assembled as part of a tribute to Jean at her last board of trustees meeting in November, 2017.
