Abigail Hudson named 2024 Brogan Scholar

Abigail Hudson of Millersville, Md., has been named a Brogan Scholar for 2024. A senior co-majoring in political science and psychology with a minor in public health, Hudson plans to pursue an internship with Safe Berks.

Brogan Scholars are exceptional students, looking to spark their vision for the future through policy or government-related internships within local, state or federal government, or other suitable organizations that offer policy or government-related internships. The Brogan Scholars Endowed Internship Fund helps these students defray expenses during their experience. Students within any major may apply for the competitive award.

A graduate of Archbishop Spalding High School, Hudson is a member of Albright’s NCAA Division III women’s lacrosse team. She began a relationship with Safe Berks last fall, as a Community Outreach and Response Intern, for which she completed certification training, educated public groups about domestic violence and sexual assault, and assisted in Rapid Response at the Berks County Courthouse.

“I chose to intern with Safe Berks because I felt that this organization is helping a population that is extremely vulnerable,” said Hudson. “Many people do not understand the severity and/or the contents of domestic violence and sexual assault. Therefore, Safe Berks is a place where we help educate, prevent, and support everyone.”

After Albright, Hudson plans to continue with the field of public health by pursuing a master’s degree in public health and continuing to volunteer with Safe Berks (if she stays in the Reading area) or with a similar organization in her hometown community.
