MEET JOSH

Army Veteran

Josh Walker joined the United States Army and served in the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. He served in multiple positions, including Humvee driver for the platoon sergeant, 50 caliber machine gunner, and M19 gunner, serving in Baghdad, Iraq. Walker received multiple Army Commendation Medals before receiving his honorable discharge in 2006.

Local Business Owner

After graduating with a degree in audio engineering, Walker worked for the nonprofit Christ in Youth, an organization that traveled and produced large events for youth.  He worked for relief organization Team Rubicon where he deployed to serve communities at home and around the world affected by natural disasters.

Walker launched his company Recon Media in downtown Plymouth. His branding and marketing agency specializes in websites, video, design, and social media for nonprofits and small businesses. The Plymouth Chamber of Commerce presented the first-ever Citizen of the Year Award to Walker for his work in the community and his leadership during the historic flooding of 2018 in Marshall County.

Dedicated Community Leader

Walker is married to his high school sweetheart Amy Carlson. They live in Plymouth with their infant daughter Soleil and their dog Baxter. Amy was a teacher at Lincoln Jr. High School, until their daughter was born. Amy is pursuing her Ph.D. in Literacy, Culture and Language Education at Indiana University. Walker and his family attend Trinity United Methodist Church in Plymouth, where Amy serves on the praise team, and Josh plays the guitar and drums. As a Kid’s Hope USA volunteer, he mentors a young child in the Plymouth Community School System.

In 2014, Walker co-founded “Discover Plymouth,” which led to downtown Plymouth’s designation as an Indiana Main Street. He serves on the board of Here/Hear, which promotes mental health awareness, and the Rees Theatre Project Committee. Josh is also a board member of the Plymouth Industrial Development Corporation, also known as PIDCO.

During the devastating Marshall County flood of 2018, Walker helped organize the group of volunteers and community leaders that became the emergency flood response team. He worked tirelessly to coordinate volunteers and resources with families and local businesses in Plymouth that needed help, using his downtown business as the central command center for the relief efforts.

Walker is now on the steering committee of the Marshall County Long Term Recovery Operations, overseeing Plymouth’s continued flood recovery efforts.

Walker was awarded the first-ever Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors Outstanding Citizen Award in 2018 for his work in the community.
