    Professor Walker considers philanthropy to be an essential component of his service to the community. Recently, he raised over $1,000 for various causes including Movember, an organization that helps bring awareness to improve numerous men's health issues including prostate and testicular cancer initiatives and the Wounded Warrior Program that helps aid in the transition of wounded veterans back into civilian life. He also continues to serve as a Rotarian, Mason, and Shriner.
