Wright-Pierce is pleased to announce the thirteen 2016 recipients of the company's Student Scholarship program. This year's recipients, students of Wright-Pierce engineers and support staff are: Matthew Atherton, Megan Hallowell, Alex Williamson, Jocelyn Davee, Eliza Balch, Alexander Olson, Erin Olson, Abigail Pearce, Emma Soucek, Lucy Soucek, Julia Wainwright, Hannah Peters and Madeline Wiegman.

The Wright-Pierce Student Scholarship program was initiated 54 years ago to honor the sons and daughters of Wright-Pierce employees for academic achievement. Since 1962, the scholarships have been awarded to more than 275 students.  Wright-Pierce views the scholarship program as a way to acknowledge the importance of higher education by rewarding students who have completed at least their first year of college. John Braccio, PE, President and CEO, is proud of the company's long standing student scholarship tradition, "We are a company that values education, and our employees, so the scholarship program has always felt like a natural way to support both."
