Mr. Wright was a graduate of Christ School class of 1953 where he enveloped himself in literature including the haunting Southern classics of William Faulker.

Christ School's One Hundred and Fourteenth Commencement
On May 18, the Christ School community gathered together to celebrate the graduation ceremony of 62 young men after a high school career full of hard work and friendship.
The Angelus bell tolled 114 times, once for every year of the school's history. A record crowd cheered on the graduates as they processed forward for the ceremony. They were greeted by Headmaster Paul Krieger and received diplomas from Director of Curriculum Joe Mouer. Chaplain Kirk Brown gave students his blessing, presenting each with a Bible signed by all faculty and a hug - a tradition at Christ School.
It was a wonderful celebration and we will miss our graduates. Go Greenies!
