He was named to the Athletic Director's Honor Roll three times and was an SEC Academic Honor Roll member in 2013. “Being able to be a microphone for the community and hold elected leaders and other stewards of tax dollars accountable is one of my biggest passions in this job,” Wright said. “I love telling the untold stories for people who need help.” Wright was born in Birmingham, AL but moved to metro Atlanta a year later. In his free-time, he loves to play golf, run, spend time outside, and get to know new people.
