A remembrance event for Erin Walker will be at 11 a.m., Nov. 2, 2013 at Shoreline Community College.
Walker was killed in an automobile accident, Thursday, July 25, near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, while returning to her childhood home in Moscow, Idaho. She was an academic advisor in the International Education Program at the college. Walker was also an accomplished musician, leading the Women’s Chorale at the Music Center in Seattle, teaching voice classes and serving as choir director for retreats and international tours through the Music Center.
The Nov. 2 event will be at the south side of the fountain square on campus near where a ginkgo tree will be planted and marked with a memorial plaque. Walker’s family said the ginkgo tree was her favorite. The event will include music by faculty members and an opportunity for friends, co-workers, students and others to share their memories of Walker. A brief fellowship opportunity will follow in the art gallery area of the 1000 (administration building). In the event of inclement weather, the entire event will be in the gallery.
“Losing Erin was a terrible shock to our campus community; staff, faculty and students,” Shoreline Interim President Daryl Campbell said. “This planting and plaque will be an ongoing reminder of what a wonderfully caring person Erin was and her contributions here at Shoreline.”
