am proud to be among the 2005 managers of the year – I have
worked closely with all of them at one time or another in my career
and I know I am part of a very special group this year."
Judy oversees the risk management function of the
District as well as the Environmental Health and Safety department. "Her
role is vital to the District's well-being," said Vice Chancellor

team are incredibly knowlegable and consistently provide
excellent service to the students and staff of the District. She
is very deserving of this recognition."
