Dr. Judy Rundell, chairwoman of the Department of Education at LSU at Alexandria, has been selected LSUA Woman of the Year. The award was presented at a Women’s History Month luncheon presided over by “first ladies” Wendy Roy, Rosa Fields and Betty Coe Manuel, the wives of Alexandria mayor Jacques Roy, Pineville mayor Clarence Fields and LSUA chancellor David Manuel.

Rundell, described as a “selfless, passionate advocate of the university and her department who fulfills her duties to the ultimate standard – her own,” joined the LSUA faculty in 2003. The education department – which consists of 10 full-time faculty members, two professional staff members and 12 adjuncts -- is preparing for accreditation from the National Council for Accreditation for Teacher Education this year.

Rundell also serves as dean of the College of Professional Studies, which includes the business administration, nursing, allied health and education departments. She is a former Boss of the Year at LSUA. Rundell holds degrees from Louisiana Tech, the University of Texas and Northwestern State University, and is certified in elementary grades, supervision of student teaching and principal.

A frequent contributor to professional seminars and journals, Rundell is a former member of the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission for mathematics, science and social studies.
