We all want to know what happens to Walker High School students after they graduate. I have personal experience because my brother, Michael Wiginton graduated from Walker last year. He along with other Walker graduates (Will Housley, Riley Graham, and Hunter Dill) attend Auburn University. This is the story of four friends’ journey from high school to college.
Michael, Will, Riley, and Hunter are all really good friends. They were big buds in high school who made plans to make the college journey together. While still at Walker, they all shared the same interests. Friendships were developed on the golf course and hunting trips. While making college plans, they discovered that they were all interested in the same field of study, Engineering. Auburn University was a natural choice for the gang. They all agreed, and made plans to attend Auburn University. Not only do they share same interests and majors, but Hunter, Will, and Michael even room together in the Quad dorms. All the guys take a golf class together as an extra-curricular class. Both Hunter and Will are majoring in Civil Engineering, while Michael and Riley are majoring in Mechanical Engineering.
A favorite activity of the friends is attending tailgate parties and Auburn football games. This is a highlight of their college experience. The guys are continuing a life journey that they began many years ago as young children. From grade school, to high school, and now on to the University, these great friends are taking on life together. Only time will tell where there journey will take them.
