Get to know both Brian and Melody Wright, who are ELITE donors of Southern Utah Athletics. We truly appreciate their continued support of our programs.

What brought the Wrights to Cedar City:

Brian graduated from Southern Utah University in Accounting and came back to Cedar six years ago to work for SUU. He is now the head controller for campus.

Why the Wrights give back to Thunderbird Athletics:

"We overall love the Thunderbird student-athletes!"

Brian also played sports growing up and has always enjoyed watching sporting events. They truly appreciate the family atmosphere and that’s what keeps them involved in T-Bird Athletics and the Thunderbird Athletic Foundation (TAF).

Favorite memory with SUU Athletics:

When football won the 2015 Big Sky Championship. The Wrights had been watching the team all year and seeing that growing success was special for them.

The championship game victory filled Brian + Melody with T-Bird pride. He vividly remembers thinking, “it’s a great time to be a T-Bird!”

Why Brian + Melody want you to be involved with TAF:

"The opportunity to help grow this program and get it to the next level is indescribable," Wright stated. "It is also special having that individual experience with the athletes, which brings us nothing but joy."
