Olympian Julia Clukey, second from right, presents the Julia Clukey Courage Award to Matt O’Shea, second from left, of Pownal, on April 28 at the Freeport Middle School. Clukey shared her “Live Inspired” presentation, talking to more than 100 students about her personal story, encouraging them to find their passion, create a plan and go after their dreams. O’Shea, 14, was selected by school administrators to receive the award because of his community involvement and volunteering, his passion for his studies and his courage to pursue his dream of becoming a pilot. Clukey and O’Shea are pictured with Sara Gideon, left, Maine Speaker of the House, and Ray Grogan, principal of Freeport Middle School.
