The Wright-Pierce Student Scholarship Program has helped support more than 300 students since its inception 56 years ago to honor the sons and daughters of Wright-Pierce employees for their academic achievements. Wright-Pierce President and CEO, John Braccio, is proud of the company’s long-standing student scholarship tradition, “As an employee-owned company since our origins in 1947, the shareholders have always made family a priority at Wright-Pierce. Part of our corporate values, and what has helped us attract some of the best engineering talent in the country, is that we support and encourage a work-family balance. Programs like the scholarship program, and our “Wright Way to Wellness” healthy work place initiative, help us build teams that work well together to share knowledge and best practices with emphasis on client service.”
