Greg Wright Scholar

Gregory Robert Wright, Jr. willingly sacrificed his life for this country. It is our intent to see that there are more like him; that there are men and women who will enthusiastically and joyfully dedicate themselves to preserving and advancing our way of life. It is our intent to encourage young men and women who understand that a life worth living is more than a self-indulgent one. That to exist, the exercise of freedom requires effort, dedication, and fortitude; that such ideals cannot become reality without fighting for them, sometimes on far shores and in harsh places. Greg's father once told him, while entering the grounds of the Virginia Military Institute (VMI), that the family motto meant that he should find a life in service to others. Greg became angry. He said that he already knew the lesson; that he had already begun to serve. How right he was. To recognize Greg's life, to remember his sacrifice of his life, and to honor his goals, we ask that you donate $10.00 to the scholarship begun in his name. Our specific goal is to raise one million dollars for the Gregory R. Wright, Jr. Virginia Military Institute Scholarship Fund.
