Stacey Enos - Director, Athletics &
Women's Soccer Coach

828-771-3737
I am the athletic director and women's soccer coach. Athletics at WWC includes varsity sports teams, aquatics, wellness, club and intramurals and outdoor programs. I oversee each director in their head roles, review programming and manage budgets.
I hold two degrees; one from UNC-CH and the other from University of Utah. I have various soccer coaching licenses and I've played professional level soccer as well as coached at the DI level. 
My first game coaching for WWC was eye opening. I arrived from an LDS University where the players were a bit more reserved.
The Owls had a home opener at a tourney at Meredith College. Beautiful field, lots of fans, PA announcer. Apparently the Owls never had done an international walk out. So as the announcements started for the fighting Owls my team was dancing around, our opponents were in disbelief and perfectly lined up one behind the other in numerical order. My keeper finally steps out and waves, i tried to get her to run out and stand next to the referees but that took awhile and the announcer continued at pace through our starting line up. Soon we were backed up and pandemonium had set in. Essentially it looked like we were slam dancing. The team made it out in time for the national anthem and then went on to push our opponents into overtime. Unfortunately we dropped in OT but I can tell you that our opponents weren't laughing at us anymore when the final whistle blew.

Charlie Wright - Athletics Trainer &
Wellness Director
cwright@warren-wilson.edu
828-771-3736
Like everyone here at Warren Wilson College, I wear multiple hats. I manage the Training Room, taking care of 120 athletes. I also teach tennis classes and I am the Director of the Wellness Program.

In the late 60’s I was in the Elementary Education Program (Urban Ed.) at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo when the call of the open road overcame me. I headed west (heeding Horace Greeley’s advice) on my trusty ’65 BMW motorcycle to the Rocky Mountains. That began a seven year odyssey that included taking care of elephants in a circus, becoming a tennis pro at various resorts and country clubs, bicycling around North America for four years, hopping freight trains, living in a tepee and a tree house, and many other marvelous adventures. It was the best education I ever got!

Those seven years ignited in me a passion for Wellness and Holistic Healing that, 40 years later, has never diminished. I started and ran a holistic health clinic in Alabama and I have studied and practiced the art of Specialized Kinesiology for more than 30 years. Along the way I have worked with a wide assortment of world class and Olympic athletes.
I also found time to raise five kids and am about to become a grandpa! I’ve been at Warren Wilson College since 2002 and I truly believe that this college gives me a place to use all my skills that I’ve gathered over the past 40 years. Health, wellness, and the healing arts are still my passion.
