The Don Walker Memorial Scholarship is extremely grateful to the owners of Buck Bradley’s who donated use of the upstairs space and helped in the planning of this event.

A special message from Sue Walker: The Walker family would like to sincerely thank the planning committee, all who attended the Oct. 14 event and the many generous sponsors and contributors to the Don Walker Memorial Scholarship.

Each speaker gave touching tributes to Don and extra special thanks to Mayor Tom Barrett for the amazing proclamation designating Oct. 14, 2015, as Don Walker Memorial Scholarship Day. This was a tremendous effort on the part of so many to extend Don’s legacy. Thank you all for your love and support and for the opportunity this offers future journalism students.
