Damon Wright’s path to becoming principal of Benicia High School was anything but traditional.
Wright, 39, was born into a military family in Virginia and lived in Japan for five of his early years. From third grade through high school, he and his family lived in San Diego.
After attending junior college in Bakersfield, and before transferring to Sacramento State University — where he would eventually receive a bachelor’s degree in psychology — Wright had a conversation that sparked his interest in education.
“I worked at Denny’s as a host,” he recalled this week in an interview with The Herald. “My boss’s wife happened to be an elementary school principal. She gave me her business card.”
