“Hi! My name is Alisha. I’m a boarder, an international student, and a rising junior at Walker’s. I joined Walker’s in fall 2019 when I started my freshmen year here. I think being a Cicerone is important because I have the opportunity to share my happiness and accomplishments as a student at Walker’s.

Welcome to Walker’s!”
