George T. WalkerThe George T. Walker Heritage Society honors those generous donors who have included the university as a beneficiary in their wills or have made other planned estate gifts such as charitable gift annuities, life insurance policies, and charitable trusts.

Dr. Walker, the university's president from 1958 to 1976, is one of the individuals most responsible for the growth of the outstanding institution known today as the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
