Under Mr. Walker's leadership, the Higbee R-VIII School District has seen an increase in academic achievement and the successful completion of a $1.4 million facility construction project.  In addition, he has overseen the district’s operating budget and strategic planning for district continuous improvement.  He is a member of the Missouri Association of School Administrators and serves as the Central Missouri Administrators Association President for the 2023-2024 school year. 

Mr. Walker is pursuing his Doctorate in Educational Leadership from William Woods University.  He holds an Educational Leadership Specialist Degree and a master’s degree in Education Administration from William Woods University, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Secondary History Education from Missouri State University. 

“I am honored to be selected as the next superintendent of the Hallsville School District,” shares Walker, “and I look forward to my family and me being a part of the community. The district is well-respected and has a history of strong academics and extracurricular offerings.  I am eager to be a part of a district full of great students and educators.
