Thank You, Judy Singleton!

JudyHailing from Danville, Va., Judy received her Associate Degree from Ferrum College in 1977. She graduated with a 4.0 grade point average and garnered several academic distinctions. In 1988, she began working at the University as Secretary Senior for the Office of Residence Life and Housing. In 1991, she moved into Student Affairs, where she has supported four Vice Presidents: Dr. Joanne Beck, Dr. Bernie Chirico, Dr. Doug Searcy, and the current Vice President, Dr. Juliette Landphair.

Over her career, Judy has gained the respect and admiration of colleagues for her professionalism, demand for excellence, and gifted writing and editing skills. Countless students, staff, and faculty have turned to her for insight and support.

She states that the greatest joy of her time at Mary Washington – besides working alongside students, faculty, and staff – is the great purpose of supporting college student success.
