Dear Bobcat Fan,

As coaches we often talk about making a difference. Joining the Bobcat Club will provide our student-athletes an enhanced experience that will make their time in Banner Elk memorable well beyond their athletic eligibility.

What the Bobcat Club has accomplished is remarkable. Over the past several years, upgrades have been done to our weight room, film room, and locker rooms as well as improved signage and promotional materials to elevate our presence.

The pride exhibited by our student-athletes over these improvements has been quite rewarding to me. Knowing we use your gifts to make things better for our student-athletes drives me to provide more. It’s also rewarding when alumni return to campus and show their pride in what we have done.

From surveys to requests, we have listened and gauged the needs of our students while looking at ways to improve their current surroundings.

It is amazing how far we have come with those who have chosen to support us with their gifts. This year, we have invested in every sport to their success.

I ask you to help continue this progress and make a difference by joining the Bobcat Club. For someone who sees the incredible impact every day, believe me when I say we are making investments in a young person’s life—a student-athlete who will remember their time wearing the Green and Gold.

Thank you,

Craig McPhail
Vice President of Athletics and Club Sports
