The Maine Sports Hall of Fame is joining with Masthead Maine to host its third and final Student Athlete Webinar on Wednesday, February 24. Students are invited to sign up for one or all three of the fifty-minute sessions.
The 9:00 AM session will focus on Lifelong Fitness and feature astronaut Chris Cassidy and Olympic gold medalist Joan Samuelson. Actor Patrick Dempsey hopes to join the group. He is currently filming on location and COVID is affecting that schedule each day.
At 10:00 AM, we will discuss "What Sports Agents Do." Our guests will be Peter Carlisle of Octagon Sports and Kristen Kuliga of Vanguard Sports. Carlisle is Managing Director of Octagons Olympic Action Sports. He represents dozens of world-class athletes including Michael Phelps. Kuliga is arguably the most prominent woman agent representing NFL clients. When Doug Flutie signed with San Diego for $300 million, she became the first woman to negotiate a starting NFL quarterbacks contract. However, a modern agent does more than show me the money. We will talk about how they help manage and develop the lives and businesses of many famous young people.
In Maine, tremendous opportunity awaits us right outside our backdoors. At 11:00 AM, we will have two experts who have made a living working in Maines outdoors Dana Bullen and Judy Camuso. Bullen is President of Sunday River who helped develop a program for those who want to work in the ski and other outdoor industries at the University of Maine at Farmington. Camuso is Commissioner of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and a member of Governor Janet Mills cabinet. She has worked for the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife for more than 20 years. She was a wildlife biologist who became head of the Wildlife Division before becoming Commissioner.
