Ann Wright, a friend of Dalton State College, suffered significant injuries as a result of a fall this past weekend. The Wright family has requested that Thursday's grand opening of the Wright School of Business proceed as planned.
The college respects the wishes of the Wright family and will celebrate the opening of the Wright School of Business Thursday at 4 p.m. in honor of the Wrights and their "unwavering friendship to Dalton State," officials said.
In 2016, Ann and Lamar Wright (Ann's husband) pledged $5 million to the DSC school of business. DSC secured another $5 million in state funding and has used the money to renovate Gignilliat Memorial Hall. In honor of the gift to the college, the business school is now the C. Lamar and Ann Wright School of Business.
