ENDICOTT, NY (WIVT/WBGH) – Habitat for Humanity is holding a dedication ceremony to celebrate the lives of two of the organization’s most impactful leaders.

The executive director, Lateisha Judge says that although she never met Amy or Brian, everyone only speaks incredibly highly of them.
Executive Director of the Broome County Habitat for Humanity, Lateisha Judge says, “To says that I was left with magnanimous shoes to fill is an understatement. Amy was such an integral part of our organization, but also our community at large. I’ve spoken with several other co-executive directors of different local non-profits and everyone knew her, everyone loved her, everyone respected her.”
The ceremony will begin at 1 p.m. and run until 3.
Judge says that Murphy’s brother Phil will be in attendance to pay homage, and that both will be memorialized with plaques in their name.
