After 29 years of dedicated service to Brazosport College, Kay Wright has announced her retirement. Wright has been the school’s Director of Financial Aid since 2005.

Daniel Yárritu has been chosen as the College’s new Director of Financial Aid.

Wright joined Brazosport College as a part-time secretary for the Business, Social Sciences and Physical Education Division in 1990. She briefly moved into a full-time role as a secretary to the Dean of Academic Education in 1998, before transitioning to the Human Resources/Payroll department, where she served as a Business Services Specialist for the next six years.

In 2005, she was named the Director of Financial Aid, a position she served until her retirement.

“I have made many great friends and memories here at Brazosport College,” Wright said. “It has been very rewarding to be able to serve our students and this community for the past 29 years.”

Taking over as the College’s new Director of Financial Aid, Yárritu has 10 years of financial aid experience at university or community college levels.

Most recently, he was the Assistant Director of Student Financial Aid & Veterans Affairs at Laredo College, where he managed financial aid operations at the Fort McIntosh campus.

In the past, Yárritu has also managed financial aid offices at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and the University of Texas at Brownsville.

“I feel very honored to join the Brazosport College family,” Yárritu said. “I’m looking forward to serving our students and the community by facilitating their access to financial aid.”

Yárritu has a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from University of Texas at Brownsville and a Masters of Business Administration in Finance from University of Texas of the Permian Basin.
