David and Shara Wright have selected a good location for their new business in San Saba. Their business, Making Education Possible, Inc., doing business as iStudySmart.com, is located next to SSISD. When they bought the business in Nashville, Tennessee, the building was furnished with office equipment and furniture which they did not need. They offered file cabinets at no cost to SSISD. The Wright’s have a heart for education and help whenever the opportunity arises.
At Making Education Possible, Inc. you can earn a college degree, preparing for it in your home instead of a classroom thereby saving on tuition costs. Students have a choice of three formats: Online, CD-ROM, or Workbook, each to be used with a textbook. The average time for one course is two months.
iStudySmart.com has partnered with over 3800 Universities for courses that include Business, Social Sciences, Humanities, Natural Sciences and Nursing. The military is also partnered and the wounded warriors are taking advantage of this opportunity. iStudySmart.com will be giving 10 scholarships to deserving wounded warriors in May. Because they care about their circumstances and want to help, the Wright’s are also going to pursue places in this area where the wounded warriors would be able to hunt and fish, which could be some of the best therapy they could have.
Scott Meador, Business Development for the company, and his wife Sheila, Sales Director, are taking care of business via phone and internet in Houston and will be moving to San Saba. Others working, at the San Saba office, are Lenora Cromer, Educational Consultant; Ashley McCoury, Bookkeeping; Sarah Kolacinski, Art Director; and Information Technology, Leif Haug.
David graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a Bachelor of Science in English; has experience as a student, athlete, teacher and coach.
Shara attended Baylor University and is an on-line graduate of Bellevue University, Nebraska. She found employment with iStudySmart.com when David was being treated for cancer. They are the parents of seven children, with a child on each campus, and have one grandchild. The family has the support of Shara’s parents, Mack and Mary Cason and other relatives in the area that are very thankful they are back in San Saba. David & Shara say they are trusting God to direct them and help them in this new adventure.
