Mayor Declares Today "Johnny Wright Day"

Tyler Mayor Joey Seeber declared today "Johnny Wright Day." Wright is the man behind Story-Wright Business Supplies in Tyler. Today he was honored for his 68 years as a member of the Rotary Club of Tyler. The 92 year old is officially retired, but he continues to help clients from his home office. Wright spent the last 50 years with the Southland Life Insurance Co. He says he owes his success in business to all the Rotarians he met over the years.

"I found out a long time ago, if you want to be good, mix with good people," Wright said. "And that's paid off all through my years."

Wright is a past president of the Tyler Rotary Club. He joined the club when he was 24 and says he's learned many valuable business techniques.
