Annual Bob Frederick Sports Leadership Lecture Series is set for Oct. 2-3 at LCSC

LEWISTON, Idaho –   A variety of topics ranging from leadership to the business end of sports highlight the issues that will be covered during the 6th annual Dr. Bob Frederick Sport Leadership Lecture Series on Oct. 2-3 at Lewis-Clark State College.

There will be seven presentations each day during the series, all free and open to the public.

During the last five years, more than 80 speakers and panels have shared insight and expertise with LCSC students, faculty, staff and the local community on sport related topics including: intercollegiate athletic administration, sport governance, sport business, education, coaching, and recreation.

The lecture series honors former University of Kansas athletic director Bob Frederick for his life-long commitment to teaching, coaching and athletic administration. Frederick served in a variety of sport leadership roles, many of them at Kansas where he participated as a student-athlete, coached, served as an athletic director, and taught classes in sport management. The speakers in this lecture series exemplify his commitment to treating people with dignity and respect and helping young people develop and achieve success.

This year, Heather Van Mullem, Chair for the LCSC Division of Movement & Sport Sciences, will present on Frederick and how he pushed others to invest, inspire and make an impact.

Other speakers will include LCSC graduates Matt Baney (2001), who is the sports editor at the Lewiston Tribune, Kelly Carlstrom (’07), boys basketball coach at Troy High School, and Peter Irvin (’17), Sales Development Representative for DocuSign in Seattle. Also scheduled to speak are Kyle Day with the Spokane Indians, Jay Demings with USA Basketball, and faculty from both Washington State University and the University of Idaho.

The lecture series is supported by the LCSC Sport Administration degree program. LCSC offers a BA and BS in Sport Administration as a co-curricular degree between the Business Division and the Division of Movement & Sport Sciences.

The full presentation schedule is listed below.
