Nathan Wright wears many hats at B&E. His undergraduate degree in management makes him an alumnus; his enrollment in the Master of Science in Industrial Relations (MSIR) program makes him a student; and he also plays roles as instructor, graduate assistant and president of the WVU Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
Wright said that his role in SHRM has taught him the important lessons of teamwork and leadership. One of only four graduate students recognized as a SHRM Foundation Scholar, Wright was recently featured in the Winter 2013 edition of SHRM's Student Focus magazine, a publication distributed globally to roughly 16,000 members, for a story about the WVU chapter's meeting with West Virginia State Senator Bob Beach. Beach visited with the chapter to discuss HR issues and internship opportunities in the West Virginia Legislature. Wright said he was very excited to have the WVU Chapter displayed in such plain view to a SHRM audience of great size.
