The University of Illinois Springfield is helping Alex Skarr grow his academic and musical talents. He is a member of the UIS Choir and sings without accompaniment in the acapella group. He is a member of the Capital Scholars Honors Program, the research society (a student group on campus that promotes research) and works for the Undergraduate Research Support Program where he helps plan and run the Student Technology, Arts & Research Symposium (STARS) and the U of I Undergraduate Research Day at the Illinois State Capitol. Later this year, he’ll present his undergraduate research at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research at the University of Memphis and at the Midwest Sociological Society annual conference. Following graduation from UIS, Skarr would like to work with high school students teaching music. Ultimately, he’d like to become a college sociology professor.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
