Former Grambling State University President Takes Top Post at Knoxville College

Horace A. Judson was named interim president of Knoxville College in Tennessee. The historically black college, which lost accreditation in 1997, has adopted a work-study program where students work on and off campus to lower their expenses and to get work experience.

From 2004 to October 2009, Dr. Judson was president of Grambling State University in Louisiana. He also served as president of the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. A graduate of Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Judson holds a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry from Cornell University.
