From the top down, the Wright-Pierce culture is one of paying it forward. Whether volunteering in Haiti to build a pump station to supply clean water to a rudimentary hospital, working with kids at the annual engineering week science fair, or a Thanksgiving food drive for a local shelter - - Wright-Pierce encourages and supports pursuits and interests that are about helping, sharing and contributing to the world beyond our four walls.
