Dunn alumnus, alumni parent, and current chair of the Dunn Board of Trustees, Guy Walker ’76 has dedicated himself in service to his alma mater. This year, we celebrate 65 years of Dunn School, and perhaps the most striking fact of all is that, come Saturday, Guy will have been in attendance at Dunn’s graduation ceremony for 50 of those years.
He attended his first Dunn commencement at the end of his sophomore year in 1974 after transferring from Dominguez High School in Compton. After he graduated, he returned to celebrate the younger classmates he had bonded with — and in that act, Guy began to build community with students he hadn’t attended school with. Then he returned to attend their graduations.
The cycle continues, and this school year, Guy sat down to talk about his run of consecutive commencements, as well as his educational background and the teachers who inspired him, for the final episode of The Whole Student podcast with Head of School Kal Balaven. Please join us in recognizing Guy for his commitment to Dunn School and congratulate him on his 50-year string of sharing his presence with our graduates.
