Fantastic Father Nominee: Harold Wright
Name: Harold Wright
City, State: Augusta, GA
Occupation: Owner of Automotive Collision Center
Number of Children: 5
Why He’s Such a Great Father: Every day I see how blessed I am to have him in my life. He is a father to five but has been like a father to many. The one thing that stands out in my mind is that everybody wants to adopt my daddy. Our family owns a business together, and once people meet him they immediately want to claim him. They’ll say they wish they had a father like mine. I am lucky. We are friends, we are colleagues, and most importantly we are father and daughter and he never lets me forget that. He’s an awesome person. We have been in business for seven years and I have learned a lot of life lessons from him that I will pass on to my kids. The husband that is looking for me will have some tough shoes to fill because my dad is a one-of-a-kind.
Father’s Community Service Affiliations: Elks Lodge 2006 Outstanding Achievement Award by Olive Road Development Group; trustee at Mt. Vernon Missionary Baptist Church; community liaison for political awareness
How He Helps Others in His Community: He has helped others in the community by being a direct source and making himself accessible. For example, he and his brothers fully furnished someone’s home because she was in need. We also hold a breast cancer awareness event every year, which is free to the public and provides food, testing, etc.
