About the artist
Glen Morovits joined the faculty of Eastern Wyoming College in January 2019 to begin a new gunsmithing program. He graduated high school in western Wisconsin in 1977 and then went to college at Trinidad State Junior College (TSJC) where he earned a degree in Gunsmithing in 1981. He then went to work at Dakota Arms in Sturgis, South Dakota.
In 1983, Morovits became a charter member of the American Custom Gunmakers Guild. In 1988, he left Dakota Arms to start his own company, where he made custom rifles for individual customers along with manufacturing custom gun stocks for multiple national companies which were Weatherby, Browning, Beretta, Dakota, Galazan, and Connecticut Shotgun. He managed B Searcy Ent. where he manufactured double rifles.
Morovits began his teaching career in 2013 at TSJC where he was a stock making instructor. He admires the work and careers of many in this field and enjoys teaching to pass on the art of gunmaking.
