Martinsburg Native Chad Walker Featured in “West Virginia Senior High” Magazine

Chad Walker, a third-year student pursuing a bachelor of applied science degree in Business Management at Potomac State College, is featured in this year’s issue of “West Virginia Senior High” Magazine, a publication that is distributed to high school seniors across the state. In addition to listing all the institutions of higher education within West Virginia along with their Chad Walkerprogram and degree offerings, the publication also includes advice and perspectives from current college students attending these schools. 

Walker, a native of Martinsburg, W.Va., grew up on a farm and says that after graduating from Musselman High School, he knew he was interested in studying how science can help sustain plants and animals. He decided on Potomac State College because of its Horticulture and Agriculture Technology programs.

He goes on to talk about working with Plant Science Professor Donna Ballard to set up a hydroponics system, the method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil, in the College’s greenhouse. And he talks about the College’s Agriculture and Forestry Club for which he served as president his sophomore year and the club’s many student activities. In the end, he recommends that students “grab the reins and go for it,” when it comes to furthering their educations. Walker is the son of Cami Rose.
