Hubert Reddick loved FAMU. Having earned his Bachelor of Arts in Economics in 1957, the proud graduate often credited his alma mater with being a significant factor in his personal and professional success. That is why after the passing of Reddick, 80, on March 24, 2014, his wife Sandra honored his wishes to give to the university that so positively impacted his life.

To continue his legacy of helping others, the Reddicks donated $100,000 to establish the Hubert Reddick Endowed Scholarship to provide financial assistance to FAMU students majoring in social work and sociology. Reddick was born on April 20, 1933 in Lake Park, GA. to the late Mrs. Anna Chever Reddick and the late Mr. Tom Reddick. He was a resident of Valdosta, GA at the time of his passing. Reddick, who was converted at an early age, was a faithfully active member of St. Paul AME Church. He graduated from Dasher High School of Valdosta, GA. in 1951. After earning his degree from FAMU, Reddick moved to New York to further his education. There, he attended Bank Street College of Education where he earned a Master of Science degree in Education.

Reddick married his beloved wife, the former Sandra Furman of New York City, in 1958. They have one son, Kenneth Reddick of Statesville, NC. Reddick was a member of the Masonic Lodge, participating in different houses and was a 33rd Degree Mason. He was also a life member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
