PEMBROKE — Senior Alexis Baril, who will graduate with her second degree from UNC Pembroke in May, has been accepted into Arizona State University School of Music. 

Baril will pursue a master’s degree in ethnomusicology in the fall. The Winston-Salem native has also been awarded a scholarship and a teaching assistant position at ASU. 

She earned her bachelor’s degree in history and American Indian Studies in 2019, graduating summa cum laude and will graduate with a degree in music in May. She was a member of Esther G. Maynor Honors College and Sigma Alpha Iota Music Fraternity. Since her freshman year, Baril has been a member of the marching band and was a drum major for three band seasons. She currently serves as chair of the Athletic Band Council and the Music Student Council.  

Outside the classroom, Baril took advantage of service-learning opportunities in the community, volunteered with her music fraternity, served as a tutor, participated in highway cleanup initiatives and assisted with high school marching bands. 

“UNC Pembroke may be small, but I have no doubts about the quality of my education. I found my path here and I’m proud to be a Brave,” she said.  

Baril’s goal is to earn a doctorate in ethnomusicology, continue her indigenous music studies and teach at a university.
