Clark Wright Jr.
Clark Wright Jr., of New Bern,North Carolina found his passion for the Appalachian Trail during a hike of over 1,200 miles of Trail which started in March of 2001. That hike served as inspiration for the North Carolina Special Tag project, an endeavor that obtained passage of legislation authorizing a new special license plate designed to raise funds for the approximately 300 miles of the A.T. that runs through western North Carolina. Wright, with many others, including NC Senator Joe Sam Queen, drafted the Special Tag project which has now grown to three other A.T. States. He enjoys his family, long-distance hiking, mountaineering, the land trust movement, photography, and competitive beach volleyball. As an ATC board member, he brings his legal expertise to bear on the organization’s efforts, as he is a partner in the law firm of Davis Hartman Wright PLLC. His areas of practice include litigation and appellate practice, zoning and land-use law, administrative law, and environmental law. Wright has been selected by his peers for inclusion in “Best Lawyers in America” for over fifteen years.
