Harry "Hank" Flick, II
Hank Flick, a longtime Mississippi State University professor of communication who impacted thousands of students during his 45-year career at the university, has died at the age of 73.
He first began teaching in MSU’s Department of Communication in 1971 and retired from teaching in 2016. He has served the university in a wide variety of roles, including as public address announcer for MSU football, basketball and track, as well as director of the University Television Center. He taught classes in interviewing, small group communication, media relations and corporate communication.
The Oakland, CA native received his Ph.D. in interpersonal and small group communication from Southern Illinois in 1985. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Memphis State University. His many teaching accolades include being named a Grisham Master Teacher in 1994 and earning Mississippi Professor of the Year honors in 1995 from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
The Department of Communication’s Hank Flick Outstanding Service Scholarship is awarded annually to communication majors that demonstrate a strong record of service to the community and MSU.
