He received an Associate in Arts Degree in Architecture from Penn College. He serves in civic and professional organizations and chairs the board of WTLR, a Christian radio station.

As the firm’s Managing Partner, Dwight chairs Hayes Large’s Executive Committee and leads Hayes Large University, the firm’s in-house continuing education initiative.
