The Benner-Hudock Center for Financial Analysis

When Barbara Benner Hudock ’75 spoke to Bloomsburg University’s May 2013 graduates, she shared 11 Lessons for Life from her 38-year career in financial services and her lifetime of community involvement. The commencement address for nearly 1,300 graduates and their families not only offered guidelines for success, happiness and fulfillment, it also demonstrated the value the CEO and founding partner of Hudock Moyer Wealth Resources (HMWR), Williamsport, Pa., places on the education she received from Bloomsburg University.

The dedication of the Benner-Hudock Center for Financial Analysis in Bloomsburg University’s Sutliff Hall reaffirms Hudock’s belief in the quality of a BU education. It also recognizes the history of philanthropic initiatives established by Hudock, who is joined by her son and business partner, Michael J. Hudock Jr., in their most recent gift to the Bloomsburg University Foundation. The naming of the center combines wishes to honor Barbara’s parents and Michael’s grandparents, Frank J. and Margaret B. Benner, and the ongoing support of BU by the Hudock family.

The Hudock family has a long philanthropic history, both personally and through their firm, of strategic giving focused on support of the arts, education and health initiatives in the community. Previous gifts to Bloomsburg University have provided a Steinway concert grand piano for Haas Center for the Arts, Mitrani Hall, in memory of Barbara Hudock’s father; a study room in Andruss Library; a student lounge in Sutliff Hall, overlooking the Academic Quad; and an auditorium in Warren Student Services Center. She has supported the Celebrity Artist Series and a documentary on MBA leadership. Contributions also have benefited the Presidential Leadership Program and scholarships through the Henry Carver Fund, the university’s annual fund, and she served as chair of the New Challenges, New Opportunities capital campaign in the early-2000s.
