WSSU’s Tonia Walker pleased with athletics program

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- Tonia Walker, the athletics director at Winston-Salem State, can’t help but smile these days when she considers the state of her Division II program.

Cultivating a winning attitude and stressing graduation of athletes isn’t easy, especially when funding continues to be a problem.

There are other issues Walker faces in the coming years, but she is ready to tackle those one at a time. It’s a good thing she’s a natural problem solver, and that comes with her years of experience in college athletics.

Personally, Walker and her husband, Wayne, became grandparents for the first time and in between spoiling their granddaughter, Skylar, she is intent on making sure WSSU stays on top in the CIAA.
Here are a few questions Walker answered about the state of the WSSU athletics program.

Q: You just completed your second year as athletics director since taking over for Bill Hayes, how successful was 2015-16?
