Travis Walker

Dear colleagues,
Thank you all for your support for SW District Chair. I am very proud to represent SW Iowa. I am proud of our contribution of quality choral music and activities we produce in Southwest Iowa.
Now that I have a little over a half a year under my belt, I have confidence that this will be a banner year for SWI.
