Hudson was inducted into the Arkansas Business Hall of Fame in 2005. He was also a charter member of the Old Main Society at the University of Arkansas.
In 1995, the Rogers Chamber of Commerce (now the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce) honored Hudson's achievements. Hudson was credited then with his financial support of the Rogers Youth Center (now Rogers Activity Center), Rogers Public Library, NorthWest Arkansas Community College and the Rogers chamber.
"The key has been surrounding myself with the right people," Hudson said at the 1995 chamber event. "You can have the best bricks and mortar in the world, but if you don't have people who are interested in learning and growing you won't succeed."
