Robert Walker, a junior at NCHS and a member of the Chiefs’ football team who was tragically lost in an accident last week, was honored by the Natchitoches Leadership Through Athletics Committee with a special “Athlete of the Week” award at the downtown riverbank Sunday, October 9. Coach, teacher, and Pastor, Rev Kedrin Seastrunk, gave a superbly moving talk on trusting God’s providence through difficulty. The committee presented the Walker family with their son’s certificate and a football with his photograph and dedication on it. Robert’s mother then thanked the students and teammates who rallied to her family’s side.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes to express its condolences to the Walker family in its time of grief and to commend the Leadership Through Athletics Committee for its thoughtful gesture.
