Mrs. Maria WalkerMaria Walker:

“Education and young people were at the heart of my husband’s ministry. He believed in education as a vehicle through which people’s lives could be lifted out of poverty and despair.

I am delighted to honor his legacy by actively participating in the implementation of his vision to provide a first-rate education to students who might not otherwise have such a significant opportunity.”

The Most Reverend Desmond Tutu:
Archbishop Desmond Tutu at the Bishop Walker School"God gave us a marlevous person in his servant, John Walker. He had that gift of making you feel special, that when he was engaging you there was nothing more important for him in the whole wide world.

Bishop Walker cared about so many of God's children. The Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys will be a point of light for young boys in a part of our world that so desparately needs it. Let us strive to make the school a fitting tribute to John Walker's blessed life and ministry."

The Right Reverend John Chane:
"Today, the  Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys exists as a tuition-free education arm of this diocese in one of the most troubled and dangerous wards in the District."
