Walker Wins An Award

Walker self-directs his services in Memphis, TN where Morning Star Financial Services provides financial management and supports brokerage supports. In November, Walker was honored recently as Associate of the Year at the grocery store where he has been employed as grocery bagger for the past 17 years.

He is the first store employee to ever receive this honor. His diligent work ethic and commitment to good customer service are among the character traits mentioned by his store manager and the store owners in attendance.

Walker is a true testament to integrated community employment.  Until age 16, Walker attended Madonna Learning Center, a private school; followed by a public high school education. He then attended a residential prevocational training center for a year.

Walker is 40 years old and now attends a program at the University of Memphis. He enjoys collecting snow globes, photography, chatting on Facebook, and time with his family at the lake in his spare time.
