Fisher “Signing Day” Welcomes Class of 2022
On Friday, April 13, the Sport Management Department brought together future majors, current students, and a panel of alumni for the department’s second annual Launch Event.
Similar to the well-known NCAA Division I Football Signing Day, incoming students were invited on campus to sign a “Letter of Intent,” pledging their commitment to the St. John Fisher College sport management program.
After the signing, the program’s newest students heard from four graduates currently working in the field today. The alumni panel included Travis Sick ’07, director of gameday operations and special events, Rochester Red Wings;
Tina Abbey ’08, associate director of alumni and constituent engagement, St. John Fisher College; Allison Pawarski ’12, sport sales and service manager, Buffalo/Niagara Sports Commission; and Matt Taylor ’16, graduate assistant in athletic communications, St. John Fisher College Athletics Department.
The event allowed members of the Class of 2022 to get acclimated to campus, meet future classmates and faculty, and hear from alumni across various segments of the sport industry.
