Last year, the Journal of Professional Capital and Community (JPCC)  awarded Walls the Michael Fullan Emerging Scholar in Professional Capital and Community Award. Walls' application highlighted his commitment and contributions to the ongoing development of professional capital in his own professional community in Northeast Washington state, along with a strong and sustained publication track record focusing on explorations of caring leadership, values, and value-infused decision making in schools, all of which evidence his deep engagement and value in the field of professional capital and community.
