Myron D. Wright grew up in Midland on the west side in the city of Thibodaux, Louisiana. A graduate of Nicholls State University and Southern University A&M, he has contributed to society abundantly through public speaking, humanitarian efforts, and good citizenship. In 2002, Myron Wright, a sophomore at Thibodaux High School became paralyzed in the last football game of the season. It was a play when a player from the opposing team pushed Myron from behind which threw him off balance. With his head down, he was hit from the front and fractured his C4 vertebrate. Although Myron maintains his feeling and sensation, he was left paralyzed from the shoulders down.His ultimate goal is to walk again, which he is not there yet, but closer than he was before. Hosted by CROWN and Relate.
