His Bobcat Story

Quinn longed to race in collegiate mountain biking. He soon learned about the Lees-McRae cycling team and knew he had to visit.

He made the journey from Texas to visit, and quickly realized his love for the unique location and the school’s diverse and strong sense of community.

Banner Elk was the place for Quinn.

In addition to joining the cycling team, Quinn was granted the 2016 Shelton Scholar award–a full-ride scholarship given only every four years.

What’s Quinn’s advice?

“If you want a small school in a small town with a lot of great outdoor activities, this is the right place. Come visit and see what is out here.”

Quinn hopes to work in the outdoor or endurance sports industry.

“As long as I’m in the mountains, I’ll be happy,” he said.
