University of West Florida President Emeritus Judy Bense was among three new members of the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame, inducted Monday night in Orlando. In the second of two parts, WUWF’s Dave Dunwoody spoke with her about her tenure as UWF President.
In 2008, Judy Bense had a number of irons in the fire, including running the School of Anthropology and Archaeology. Then, President John Cavanaugh stepped down to take a position in Pennsylvania. Bense – who was in Mexico at the time -- was asked to take over on an interim basis.
