Mother. Grandmother. Friend. Colleague. Loved One. Sister of Faith. There are not enough positive descriptors to use when speaking about Edna Wright. She has helped thousands of children, thousands of adults feel loved, feel respected, feel confident. She treats every person who walks through the doors of Pocomoke Middle School like family. She is the epitome of a caring educator. She has loved the ones who are sometimes the toughest to love; the ones who push away everyone else. I taught beside her for many years, and now I work with her as she is Pocomoke Middle School's SADD advisor (Students Against Destructive Decisions). She tries to educate her kids about the dangers of drugs, alcohol, smoking/vaping, and other risky behaviors. Edna Wright is a legend in her community. I have known people from ages 12 to 50 that sing her praises, have fond memories of being in her class, tell stories of things she taught them and describe her hugs! Oh.....her hugs....they are the best!!!!!!!! I will forever be grateful for all she taught me about life, love, teaching and friendship! We are all so lucky to have Edna Wright in our lives.
I have known Ms. Wright for 35 years. She was an inspiration to me when I was a new teacher. I learned so much from her and her work with students. I wanted to be able to build the type of relationships with my students that she had developed with hers. She has mentored so many of our children and taught them so many life lessons. As a teacher, she truly has changed lives and has helped so many children see their value. We are all better people for having known Mrs. Wright!
Congratulations Mrs Edna Wright for your Life Changer of the year 2018-19 Nomination. You have made a huge difference in Worcester County students for over 40 years. You have been a family Consumer Science teacher at Pocomoke Middle School and have taught students in the After School Academy Program. Congratulations.
I have known Edna Wright for over 40 years. I have been blessed with her being my children's teacher through the years and now my grandchildren. There is not a more selfless person that I have known. I have watched her give everything she has to give daily to the students while I was blessed to work with her at Pocomoke Middle School for thirty years. No has never been in her vocabulary. In the last three years she has worked with me with our Young Moms Program of the Eastern Shore at the High School in Pocomoke sponsored by the Grace Pregnancy Center. There is much history between Mrs. Wright and I and our families. We have laughed together and we have have cried together. She has been my prayer partner when I was at the bottom always lifting me up. I can't say how many pants she has shortened for my spouse and how gowns she has shortened for my girls and their daughters. I can say when I child leaves her room at the end of the day they know they are loved and cared about. If you haven't had a chance to meet Mrs. Edna Wright......I urge you to stop by Pocomoke Middle School and meet this extraordinary women of faith and love for each individual on this earth. I am privilege to call her my friend.
My children have been blessed to have Ms. Wright in class. She loves each of her student as her own. Everyday she puts out everything for children. She can be found washing clothes for kids and packing food for the weekend whenin need. She is a blessing.
Mrs. Wright is an excellent teacher. The students learn so much from Mrs. Wright; they are able to apply the skills and knowledge that they get from Mrs. Wright in their daily lives. She is a role model to staff and to students.
Edna always makes people feel good about themselves. She does this with her students and the adults in the building. Congratulations, you are a kind and caring person. The world needs more people like you.
This award was named for Mrs. Wright! She has changed the lives of many Pocomoke students and guided quite a few teachers, too! I admire her strength and dedication! Thanks for just being a great person!
Mrs. Wright has made my first year at Pocomoke Middle School an amazing one. She greeted me with open arms from the first day we met over the summer as she worked in her room preparing for her students. Her dedication to the school and community is unparalleled. Mrs. Wright cares for everyone as though they are family and helps everyone without hesitation. She is an inspiration and I am so blessed to work along side Mrs. Wright on the specials team at PMS.
Mrs. Wright has a kind word and a smile for everyone. She is an exceptionally warm and kind person who makes a difference in school climate.
Edna Wright, serves as a “mother figure” to the vast majority of our students and staff. She routinely will go out of her way to assist and help any person that is in need. I have many friends that are former students of Mrs. Wright, and all recall her as having a tremendous influence on their lives in some way. Clearly, Mrs. Wright epitomizes what it means to be called to empower and motivate.
Mrs. Wright is one of the most amazing women I've had the pleasure to teach with and know. She is a calm force in the eye of every storm. She is kind, warm, thoughtful, and so wonderful with our students. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. From altering former students' prom dresses, washing their clothes when they can't do it at home, teaching students to make homemade, nutritious food, and being an ally to some of the kids other teachers have trouble with, Mrs. Wright does it all and more. She is truly a gift to our school.
Although I have only known Mrs. Wright for a short time, it is obvious how much on an impact she has on the students and the community. She is always smiling and the students love her! <3
Miss Edna is the heart of our school. She is always there to lend a hand, a hug or a needle and thread to anyone. I cannot think of anyone more deserving of this award. She truly embodies the spirit of our school.
She is a light to our school, to both the students and staff. She is incredibly humble and always lifts everyone before herself. She deserves this award for her decades of dedication to the students and staff at Pocomoke Middle School.
Mrs. Wright taught both of my children. She is a warm, loving, dedicated teacher. Her door is always open to her "children". My kids are better people because she was in their lives.
She taught the kids how to sew and cook. And how to slow down when they were going too fast to do it right.
Congratulations Mrs. Wright!!! You're amazing. Thanks for being a great teacher to all of us! Class of '86 - Tabatha DeAngelis

Edna Wright is a more than a teacher. She is the heart and soul of our school. She is love and honor personified. I can’t think of anyone who has changed more lives, students and teachers alike, than Mrs. Wright.
She's the most kind and sweetest teacher. I would probably never learned to sew or bake using correct measurements if it wasn't for Mrs. Wright.
Ms. Wright has been a dedicated figure in the Pocomoke community for decades. She continually works closely with children and brings out the best in them daily. She is the epitome of the word "role model."
