Chris Hudson grew up in Augusta with a single mother due to the untimely death of his father. He grew up poor and often ate mayonnaise sandwiches and drank condensed powdered milk because his family couldn’t afford deli meat and fresh milk. Chris wore hand-me-downs and shoes that, when the soles were worn out, were duct-taped together.
As a young teen, Chris made money by selling golf balls, which he retrieved in local golf course ponds. Chris worked at a local grocery store through high school and full-time during college. After successfully getting into law school, Chris worked odd jobs around his classes to make ends meet.
Chris now owns and manages a multimillion-dollar law firm, Chris Hudson & Associates, and is a partner in a large real estate holding group, Hudson Beddingfield LLC. Understanding the obstacles underprivileged youth face in the pursuit of higher education, Chris is proud to give back to a community by assisting these youth attain their scholastic goals through scholarships.
