Reggie Howard

Reginaldo “Reggie” Howard was the first African American President of the Associated Students of Duke University (the primary organ of undergraduate student government at Duke). A sophomore political science major, Reggie was returning to Duke for a meeting from his home in Columbia, South Carolina, when he was killed in an automobile accident. His high academic standards, unquestioned integrity, sincere concern for others, and good humor made a deep impression on all who came into contact with him, and ultimately inspired the foundation of the Reginaldo Howard Memorial Scholarship Program.
