Rutherford County Commissioner Pettus Read who represents the area of Rutherford County where the tornado took the life of MTSU Adjunct Professor Angie Walker, wife of WGNS' Scott Walker, said that a special resolution will honor her on Thursday evening (12/13/18).
Walker, who taught psychology at MTSU, loved to travel. Most recently she went on a family trip to Alaska, Canada and Seattle. Prior to that, she and her her husband went to Israel this past April.
Professor Walker received her undergraduate degree from the University of Memphis and her Masters Degree at MTSU. Keep in mind that while working on her Masters Degree she had a newborn baby named Reed, who is now 17. Later, Walker gave birth to Olivia who is now 14.
A tornado that struck Christiana on November 6, 2018 took the life of Walker just 9 days before her 42nd birthday. The tornado also destroyed the Walker home and all of their belongings.
The "Resolution of Sympathy" will take place near the start of the Rutherford County Commission meeting on Thursday night which starts at 6pm in the county courthouse.
