In addition to her work, Wright enjoys many types of volunteer work. She has been a Girl Scout leader and a Sunday school teacher for many years.
“I believe in a daily walk with God and maintaining your faith,” Wright said.
She passed this passion of helping others to her children. Both her daughter, Sabrina, and her son, Sam, volunteered at the hospital in their youth. They were both recipients of the “12 Kids Who Care” award and they also received scouting honors for their volunteer work.
In 2020, Wright celebrated 59 years as an employee, the longest tenure of anyone in the organization.
