NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — College of New Rochelle President Judith Huntington was recently honored by Westchester's leading business organization and appointed to two prestigious boards.
On April 18, Huntington was inducted into The Business Council of Westchester's Business Hall of Fame and received the "Women in Business Award" at the Business Council's annual awards event.
