Alexis Semaj Fegan was born in Warner Robins, Houston County, Georgia on March 06, 1997 to her loving parents James Ivory Fegan Jr. and Vivian Brown Fegan. She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Louis Carlton Brown and Choon Ja Brown.
Alexis’s education began in the Houston County School system, where she attended Shirley Hills Elementary in Warner Robins, Georgia. After moving to North Carolina in 2005, she attended schools within the Winston-Salem Forsyth County School system and graduated from Parkland Magnet High School in June 2015. During her high school years, Alexis was active in volleyball, cheerleading, dance, drama and theater. She was also inducted into the National Honor Society and worked part-time at Burger King before being employed at Chick-fil-A.
Following high school, Alexis enrolled at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. She was a Chancellor’s List recipient (3.85 or higher GPS), Dean’s List recipient (3.45 or higher GPA), and was actively involved in several organizations including the W. H. Plemmons Leader Fellows, where she served on the Plemmons Advisory council, as well as the Minority Women’s Leadership Circle (MWLC), Sigma Lambda Academic Honor Society, and Black Student Association (BSA). She served in the capacity of Senator of the Student Government Association (SGA) and earned the positions of Student Orientation Undergraduate Leader (SOUL) and University Housing Resident Assistant (RA).

Alexis was a member of First Baptist Church of Lexington, North Carolina and also made the time to volunteer at Crisis Control Ministries, Exchange SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now), and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s Comprehensive Cancer Center. She accomplished much in her lifetime and exemplified grace, fortitude, and resilience. She always wore a smile that could light up any room and she always saw the good in others. Alexis chose to live her life selflessly, constantly giving and consistently putting others before herself, and that is how she would like to be remembered.
