TERRELL T. REDDICK LEADERSHIP AWARD
FOR COMPANY GRADE OFFICERS
This award is presented annually to one individual to recognize the achievements and dedicated service of Army and Air National Guard junior officers who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and professionalism in their services and community. BG Terrell T. Reddick, who passed away in September 2005, served in the Georgia Army National Guard for more than 37 years and as President of the National Guard Association of Georgia. In both his civilian and military careers, BG Reddick demonstrated the kind of inspirational leadership that helped everyone see the good that was in them and how to be the best they could be.

The award recognizes company grade officers who demonstrate the ideals for which BG Reddick stood.
