Sophia Lynn Baker
Sophia graduated from Dobyns-Bennett High School, where she was a drum major for two years in that school’s award-winning and nationally-recognized marching band, and participated in numerous competitions and parades, including the 2013 Presidential Inauguration Parade. A member of Dobyns-Bennett’s Beta Club, National Honors Society, and Science Olympiad team, Sophia was also the co-founder of the “Pay It Forward” organization, which provides support for students in need. Outside of school, she is very involved, with both her church youth group and mission work. An outstanding student who earned Dean’s List honors each of her first two semesters at ETSU, Sophia is focused on bringing positive change to others; with a major in Anthropology and a minor in Communicative Disorders she is pursuing Speech Pathology as a career with a focus in cleft palate patients. This summer she plans continue those positive efforts while interning with both Healthy Kingsport in Kingsport, TN; and the Johns Hopkins Medical School in Baltimore, MD.
