Will Wright is a native South Carolinian. He grew up in Aiken surrounded by horses, golf courses, and pine trees.

Wright earned his Bachelor of Arts in communication from the University of South Carolina Aiken, where he discovered his passion for higher education through an internship in the chancellor’s office and holding positions in student government, his fraternity, and other organizations.

After graduation, Wright worked for USCA as an admissions counselor. During that time, he earned his Master of Science in management and leadership from Coker University. He would then go on to work as the Assistant Director of the Southwest Campus at Jefferson Community & Technical College in Louisville, Kentucky. Weary of the cold Kentucky weather, he decided to move back home and become a Chanticleer. He enjoys helping students make the most of their college careers.

In his free time, Wright enjoys playing real tennis, golfing, traveling, going to the beach, hiking in Hitchcock Woods, and spending time with family and friends.
