Former PSU Pres Now Leave Grambling

Dr. Horace Judson has resigned from Grambling State University. The Press Republican reports that the former embattled Plattsburgh State president said family reasons were behind his decision to step down as Grambling's leader, effective Oct. 31. Judson said in a news release quote -- "When I began as president at GSU, I made a commitment to serve for five years. The extraordinary progress that has been achieved in every facet at GSU over the past five years has been validated." Judson faced several controversies in Louisiana that were similar to troubles that plagued him during his final years at Plattsburgh State. Judson took the helm at Plattsburgh in 1994 and announced his resignation on Dec. 5, 2002, leaving at the end of the spring 2003 semester. He cited increased enrollment and support for the College Foundation among his accomplishments at Plattsburgh State.
