Hodges University

Hodges Trustee named to State Legislature

Hodges Board of Trustees member Kathleen Passidomo has been named the area’s newest state representative.   Passidomo won the race for Florida House District 76 – currently held by Rep. Tom Grady, R-Naples – by default after his wife, Ann Grady, dropped out of the race. Grady did not seek re-election. It was Passidomo’s first time running for public office.

A 30-year Naples resident, Passidomo has served as the founding member of the Collier County Juvenile Justice Council and the Collier County Senior Resource Center, was a driving force behind the Collier County Foreclosure Task Force, and has been involved with dozens of other local and state organizations. She is currently a partner at the law firm of Kelly, Passidomo, Alba & Cassner, LLP.

“Kathleen has been a great friend to our institution for many years,” said Dr. Terry McMahan, President of Hodges University. “She has always felt that students should be well-educated and well-prepared to enter the workforce in a knowledge-based economy. She understands the needs of our community and will make an excellent representative.” 

Passidomo has served as a Trustee for Hodges for many years. She has also chaired the annual Hodges University Humanitarian of the Year awards luncheon.
