Judy Mott graduated with an Urban Studies Bachelor of Arts degree in 1977 and then quickly began a successful career in the public service.
Judy first took a position as project director with the City of Dayton. Within five years, she served as a project director for the American Society for Public Administration and completed a Masters of Public Administration at the University of Dayton (1982). Judy went to work for Montgomery County in 1980, where she still serves as manager of community development and as executive director of the Montgomery County Arts and Cultural District. In her positions, Judy has helped make Montgomery County one of the most progressive counties in the country. Her efforts to create programs that rebuild declining neighborhoods and serve low income families and develop and support arts and cultural programs have been recognized as models in the state and across the country.
The Urban Affairs Outstanding Alumnus Award tonight is a small token of appreciation for all of her good work to raise our quality of life and to support those less fortunate in our communities. We are happy Wright State University could play a role in her successful public service career.
