Message: Mr. Walker was a great teacher, administrator, and friend. I always looked forward to his gumbo; and any time he mentioned it to me, lunch time seemed like hours and hours away and I just had to get onto him for making me hungry. He loved the school and those students, and his care and concern made me feel proud to know him and honored to work for him. He always reminded me that educating kids took the whole village and that he worked alongside me and would be there to help me. He was a great inspiration to many and is missed! My family and I are sorry for your loss and pray for comfort and peace to all family of Mr. Walker.
