“Hannah Hudson is an outstanding student who attended Southeastern during the peak of the pandemic. When the pandemic began, she instantly became a remote student and she thrived, she did not seem to struggle at all,” said Madewell. “As a professor at SE, I am so proud of her accomplishments and look forward to seeing her continue to be a successful role model for other Southeastern students and the greater community.”
