This Week in Walker

The Business Leaders of Tomorrow are at Appalachian Today

While our student body may not recognize the past motto of the Walker College, our faculty and alumni bodies will: The business leaders of tomorrow are at Appalachian today. Penned by then-dean Kenneth Peacock more than 20 years ago, the slogan still holds true today. The Walker College of Business Honors Convocation is just one forum to celebrate our outstanding students, and during the event the top overall student for the academic year is announced. (If you see Emily Young or Cole Maita in the Peacock Hall corridors, be sure to congratulate them, as it was their names that were announced last Friday!) View a list of the past top overall students,, and read about more of our business leaders of tomorrow online,

See below for opportunities taking place in our college this week.

—Heather Norris, Dean of the Walker College of Business
