She has been at Eureka since 20-14, where she was the college's first diversity officer, and also served as Vice-President for strategic and diversity initiatives.
She has been the college's interim President since 20-16.
In a statement, the chairman of the Eureka board of trustees said that Doctor Wright has improved the college, while reaching out to build new relationships with new partners, including Quest Charter Academy in Peoria.
