Kathleen Hudon (MBA ’20) | May 2022

Kathleen Hudon graduated from the UF MBA program in 2020 and currently serves as the Director of Student Affairs at Pensacola State College.

Because in-person graduations were cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, Hudon returned to Gainesville to participate in a December 2021 graduation ceremony – but she did it in a unique way.

Hudon’s father, Richard “Rick” Hudon, passed away in September 2021. Since he wouldn’t be able to attend her graduation, Hudon came up with a way to honor him. The two shared a love for Corvettes, so she rented one to drive to her UF MBA graduation, which took place in the University Auditorium where her father graduated from dental school 30 years prior.
