Dr. Cecelia Walker, executive director of chaplaincy and clinical pastoral education for Brookwood Baptist Health, has been elected to the Samford University board of trustees. Samford's 40-member board serves a four year appointment as the governing body for the university.
"As a graduate of Samford's Beeson Divinity School, I am incredibly honored to be able to serve in this capacity and give back to a university that has opened countless doors for me," Walker said.
Walker also serves as an Association for Clinical Pastoral Education certified educator for a parish-based CPE program at the Morning Pilgrim Baptist Church in Montgomery and as an associate minister at Birmingham's Greater Shiloh Baptist Church.
Walker previously served as a member of Samford's Board of Overseers. She is also the national certification chair for the Association for Clinical Pastoral Educators.
