Judith (Judy) Duda was born in Chicago, but has lived in Central Florida since 1958. Educated at Concordia University and Rollins College, Ms. Duda served in several teaching and music director positions in private schools between 1958-1979, while raising her family of four children and has served as an organist for St. Luke’s Lutheran Church/Oviedo, FL for many years.Her interests in education, music and the arts and social ministry are reflected in the volunteer leadership roles she has filled as a member of the Board of Regents (Concordia University, Nebraska); Chair of the Dean’s Executive Council: Colleges of Arts & Humanities/University of Central FL; Vice-President of the Board of Trustees: WMFE, the Central Florida NPR/PBS affiliate; the Florida Historical Society; President’s Council: Concordia University, Chicago; the Christian Service Center, Lutheran Services Florida, Lutheran Counseling Services, the Polasek Foundation and other entities.

She is the founder and Coordinator of the St. Luke’s Concert Series, now in its 15th season, and has chaired Capital Campaigns, Executive searches and special events on behalf of various community endeavors.

The highest priority in her life, however, is “family,” which includes two sons, two daughters and nine grandchildren.
