Here's more information about Walker from the Fort Worth ISD website. A graduate of O.D. Wyatt High School and the University of Texas at Arlington, he is working on a doctorate at the University of North Texas.
Dunbar High School principal Carlos Walker is being honored this weekend as the administrator of the year by the Texas Caucus of Black School Board Members.
The group is holding its annual education summit event in Austin. The event's opening speaker is Texas Education Commissioner Michael Williams, the first African American to hold the post.
"Mr. Walker was selected to be honored based on what he has done for students. The committee felt he was head and shoulders above other" candidates, President Ted Beard said in a telephone interview on Wednesday.
Walker will win cash and a trophy at a dinner over the weekend, Beard said.
