Alum Success

Elaina Marinik

My education at Lake State taught me not only the basics of exercise science and health and wellness but prepared me for my future research career. I became involved in national organizations, improved my networking skills to create working relationships, and ended up with an amazing paid internship that turned into a 3-year research professional position at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. Now in graduate school pursuing a doctorate degree at Virginia Tech, I rely on the knowledge I acquired at Lake State and put it to practice daily while discussing health-related topics in class or conducting obesity and inflammation research in our laboratory.

Title: WHERE IS DEAD?
Movie ID: VT3119
Movie Number: 3119
Description: The film depicts a close relationsyip between a young brother and sister and expands this relationship to include the family--mother, father, and grandfather. An auto accident, which takes the life of the brother, David, thrusts grief upon the family and plunges his sister, Sarah, into a struggle for understanding and adjustment that is the focus of the action. First Satah struggles with the fact of her brother's death, a fact that she is helped to accept by her father. Then she investigates her mother's feelings in an attempt to understand her own feelings. Next she turns to her grandfather, who provides insight into how other people feel and react. In a scene with a playmate Sarah tests the knowledge she has gained and finds that it does not relieve her loneliness or despair. In the final scene Sarah wanders to a playground where she finds an infant perched uncertainly at the top of a slide. She approaches the child, calling the same words of encouragement that her brother spoke to her at the beginning of the film. As the infant slides down toward her, Sarah smiles in recognition of her discovery. Life has triumphed.
