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.

News

As Tipton Academy wraps up its first school year, we have a lot to celebrate.

We celebrate Families – Tipton Academy celebrates our school families throughout the year. At the end of each trimester our Enrichment Night allows our students to showcase their talents for all to see. Our Family Movie Nights bring together parents and siblings of all ages for a night of fun and a good movie. And to celebrate our moms and dads, students honored their moms at our Mother's Day Tea and recently celebrated their fathers at our Dads and Donuts event.

We celebrate Academics – Tipton students have made significant academic gains this year. Staff has worked hard throughout the year to meet the needs of each student and give them many different opportunities to bring that knowledge to life.

We celebrate Students – Tipton Academy celebrates our student's success in many different ways each and every day. Some students participate as a reading buddy, while others help out in the preschool rooms during lunch. Our school safeties attended a Tiger baseball game while our 3rd and 5th grade spelling bee champions attended the State Spelling Bee. Some have even earned a golden ticket because they were caught doing something good. Twenty-five of our 4th-5th grade students are excited to be attending Science Camp at LSSU this summer and, thanks to Mr. John Romine who provided their scholarships; five students will be attending the Fine Arts Camp.

Tipton Academy has a lot to celebrate and are looking forward to next year!

Political Science ...

Political Science

"The study of political science/law is basically the path of least resistance for me. It is a subject that has always interested me, and one that I have proved to be naturally insightful in. Studying political science isn’t just the study of how governments function or how it is composed, but the study of why it exists and to what ends. In short, it is the study of what makes everything else possible."
