A Thought-Provoking Video

Anthony Leach, one of 11 "travelers" in the video.

If you’ve got 13 and a half minutes to spare, you might want to sit back and watch this video that my colleague Dan Leri ’79 recently commissioned.

Dan is director of Penn State’s Innovation Park, which—among other roles—serves as home to a number of startup companies linked to faculty research. He recently had some talented friends produce the video for him on the subject of “journeys.” It may seem like a soft and squishy concept for a research park, but it’s very apt. As Dan put it in the email he sent to Innovation Park tenants, prospective tenants, and other corporate types:

We believe all the individuals at The Park are on a personal journey. And since you have picked a path, we want to support your journey. So, we gathered a few of the folks we’ve met over the years and asked them, “Have you learned anything about life?”

I suspect you’ll recognize some of the people who agreed to sit in front of the camera and reflect: They include fly fisherman Joe Humphreys ’57, retired art professor Stuart Frost ’49, former ice hockey coach Joe Battista ’83, and many others. And I also suspect you’ll enjoy their thoughtful insights—on subjects like failure, trust, lessons learned from loss, and creating change in your life.

You can see the video here.
