Alum Success

Anna Wilson

"Lake State is a local University that gave me the option to earn my education while be located close to my family.  My short-term goal is to gain as much experience as possible in the community and to possibly continue my education toward a Masters Degree.  I’d like to continue my work within the city and take advantage of opportunities to be more involved in local politics.  In the long term, after I’ve made myself as competitive as possible the marketing field, I’d like to get a job at a medium to large size company and work more with individual products or brands as opposed to marketing a company itself."

" Currently I am a Board Member on the Sault Ste. Marie Downtown Development Authority, in which my marketing background has been beneficial.  Also, I work with the International 500 Snowmobile race as the Chairperson of the Non-Race Events Committee and I work in the pits doing timing for the race and other tasks.  I am studying snowmobile mechanics to eventually become a race official or snowmobile technician.  I compete on the Soo Co-op Credit Union bowling team and I’m continually involving myself in various community events."

Title: Industrial Revolution, The
Movie ID: VT6263
Movie Number: 6263
Description: It started in England and reached its peak in America. The Industrial Revolution is a period of history that began in the early 18th century and carried through to the 20th century. Why it started in England is a fascinating question. It is one of many this informative video addresses. It is Central England, even more specifically, it is the textile industry which gives this period its start. Certain inventions were responsible for the changes seen by society. However, society itself, or consumerism in the marketplace, was just as responsible. It was an age when society went from traditional to modern, from agrarian to mechanized, from rural to urban, from simple to complex. In the words of Charles Dickens, "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." Consumers had new and better clothing, teapots, porcelain, steam engines, steel, and even horseless carriages. At the same time, however, cities became more crowded. There were sanitation problems, cruel child labor was common, and many industrial centers experienced terrible pollution like never before. The Birmingham, England region became known as "The Black Country" due to its dirty air and water.
