“In my nearly two years with Manhattanville, Julie has been one of if not the most valuable member of the athletics department,” said Manetta. “To me, the decision to promote her was an easy one. For the previous five years, she has and will continue to ensure that the Manhattanville Department of Athletics and Recreation successfully operates on a day-to-day basis.”

Being a Valiant is unlike any other college experience in that you become a part of a family. I am honored and eager to continue my growth with the Valiant family and work together to further improve the student experience.”
Hudson will continue to plan the department meetings and events, handling all of the schedules, agendas and orders as well as act as a liaison to the rest of the college departments for all special events, including alumni events, fundraising, student-athlete meetings, Hall of Fame and more. She will also continue to assist with the reconciliation of department finances and management of game contracts for all 22 varsity programs.
