In recognition of the outstanding contributions Judge J. Elliott Hudson made to the University of King’s College, to his profession as Family Court Judge and to his volunteer commitment, the University of King’s College Alumni Association has established the Judge J. Elliott Hudson Distinguished Alumnus/a Award.
This award is to recognize King’s alumni who, like Judge Hudson, have made significant contributions to their discipline, community, charitable or volunteer work.
Pushing for equity within the business world has always been at the core of Robyn Tingley’s, BJ’97, professional pursuits. As a speaker, trainer, and author who presents to audiences worldwide about diversity and leadership, she has worked as a corporate HR and communications executive for a Fortune 100 company with responsibilities spanning four continents.
