Days of Scholarship & Engagement

Celebrating the Research of Students, Alumni, and Employees

Days of Scholarship is a tradition at Barton College. We gathered together once a year to welcome guest researchers, listen to research presentations from students, staff, and faculty, and celebrate our alumni whose research skills, built at Barton, have led them to success.


Ms. Shannon Baker, Class of 2021

Shannon Baker graduated from Wilson Early College in 2019, and she completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communications with a concentration in journalism at Barton College in 2021. She was employed as a radio personality for 98.5,“The Big Dawg,” in Rocky Mount for the following year and a half. In late 2022, she became a digital reporter for WNCT Channel 9. She has been the lead singer for the band, “Shannon Baker and Sometime Soon” for approximately eight years. Her passions in music focus on country and bluegrass. The band now travels up and down the East Coast, playing at festivals and venues. In the summer of 2021, they made their debut in Nashville, Tenn., at the world-famous Station Inn.

About Poster Presentations

Academic posters balance the information pertaining to research with the design and layout of graphics, concisely communicating key elements of the project. Members of the Barton College community apply to have their posters included in Day of Scholarship, and these posters are adjudicated by faculty volunteers.

At an academic conference, posters are displayed throughout the duration of the event with their respective researchers on hand to discuss the content.
