QUINCY - While most of the nation watched President Barack Obama's State of the Union address from their own homes, a part-time Quincy College professor got to watch from inside Obama's home.
Erik Walker, an adjunct professor at Quincy College and an English teacher at Plymouth South High School, was among about 100 people chosen to live tweet from the White House during Obama's speech Tuesday. Walker's Twitter handle is @erikmwalker.
Walker, an adjunct faculty member at Quincy College's Plymouth campus for 15 years, was selected as part of a program called White House Socials, which invites a variety of social media enthusiasts to document live events at the White House.
Walker tweeted images and anecdotes from his visit to the White House throughout the day Tuesday. He attended a special panel discussion with White House officials after the president's speech.
Walker has been named the teacher of the year at Plymouth South and adjunct of the year at Quincy College. He has received funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the past decade.
