Students raise money to donate to ASU

Posted: Updated:

Some Albany State students are getting together to honor a man who meant a lot to the university's music department.

Former ASU band director Jessie Walker died in June. Band members will collect money to start a scholarship fund in his honor.

They say Walker played a huge role in the Band's legacy, and helped make many improvements around campus.

Jonathan Hill says "This is to basically start something that he started not letting it finish because he passed away."

Walker also served as band director at several high schools in south Georgia and is a member of the Georgia Bandmaster's Hall of Fame.
