My name is Susan Wright. I am the Meadow Glen Middle School School Nurse. I graduated from East Tennessee State University in 1993 with a bachelor of science degree in nursing. I return to school nursing after working 5 years at a local pediatrics office. Prior to that, I was a school nurse in Lexington School District One. Additionally, I have worked as a nurse in oncology, home health and outpatient surgery. I have been happily married for 30 years to John who is retired from the military and works now doing plans and operations at Fort Jackson. It has been a grand adventure being a military spouse for 23 years. Our active duty military life afforded us many opportunities to live in many places to include living in Italy for three years. John and I have 2 children. Levi, is our son, who is married to Meredith. Ginny is our daughter and our youngest. Levi is beginning law school at the University of South Carolina while Meredith begins her career as an Occupational Therapist. Ginny recently graduated from USC with her social work degree and is currently working on her masters in social work. I have a love/hate relationship with running but I do love spending time exercising with my FiA sisters. I enjoy traveling and exploring as well as being outside (when it is not in the South Carolina hot humid summers). I also enjoy serving in our preschool ministry at Lexington Baptist Church as well as doing Disaster Relief with Samaritan's Purse. I know the students at MGM will also bring me joy and I hope to serve them well in their journey in the middle school years.Health Room Hours – 7:30-3:30Email: email@example.comPhone: 803-821-0611
