Dawson believes these core values will translate into making his business successful, while helping other businesses become successful as well.
After marrying his wife, Maria Clara, Dawson relocated to Central Florida. He worked for Rollins College as the R-Card Coordinator. “Besides supporting the campus card needs for over 4000 faculty, staff, students and visitors, I also redesigned and maintained the R-Card department’s website with limited training, including a transaction website for deposits onto the cards.” Wright also completed two internships while at Winter Park Tech and continues volunteering as a co-webmaster at his church. Prior to 2014, his professional experience in troubleshooting, creating and maintaining websites totals over 10 years.
I also believe businesses need to have a web presence. It is the most cost effective way to get your brand out there. Like mine, every business has a goal to achieve, a mission to complete and a story to tell. I feel by going into business, I can help others get noticed and meet their goals.
In the community, Dawson served on the Course Advisory Board for Web Development at Winter Park Tech. He serves on a home owners’ association board, helping maintain properties in the community and addressing resident needs. He coached youth and high school soccer in the Pittsburgh area and was also recognized for his service as a volunteer baseball coach for Indian River Little League in Titusville, FL.
Since 2009, Wright has helped organize a charity golf tournament, and in 2014, started a charity bowling event to help JMJ Pregnancy Center, for whom he serves on the Advisory Council. He has held multiple officer positions, including youth director and comptroller within the Knights of Columbus. He also volunteered as the co-webmaster at St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church. Dawson currently serves as the webmaster for the University of Central Florida Golf Association, UCFGA, and also webmaster and president for the Penn State Alumni Association, Central Florida Chapter.
“I’ve been so blessed over the years. I grew up in a family that always was helping in our community. It is important to help others, especially our future generations, and to lead by example. I owe a lot to my family and friends who have supported me throughout the years who set the example for me. In a way, they are as much a part of my success and the success of the charitable events I have and will continue to participate in that help those who are less fortunate. I hope that future generations will be able to carry the torch and give back, especially those within my own circle of family and friends.”
