Quintin Pile '18

QuitinPileWhen he was looking at colleges, Quintin Pile ’18, a finance and accounting major with a minor in business from Tyler, Texas, wanted the opportunity to play baseball, travel and challenge himself academically. The C. B. and Lillian Mooneyham Endowed Scholarship has allowed him to do all three.

In his first year as a Terrier, Pile was named to the Southern Conference Academic Honor Roll. He stays busy juggling academic and athletic responsibilities, but says he always takes time out to volunteer with the Carolina's Miracle League. "Giving back to those kids through baseball and developing relationships with them has been such a blessing," says Pile.

This January, Pile and other members of the Terrier baseball team traveled to Italy where they visited the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel, Pompeii and other sites to study the art, religion and culture of the Rome, Florence, Bologna and Venice area. Pile, who eventually plans to attend graduate school back in Texas to earn an M.B.A., called the experience "incredible."

The C. B. and Lillian Mooneyham Endowed Scholarship was fully funded in 2007 with a gift from the estate of Lillian Champion Mooneyham. She wanted to ensure that her husband, C. B. "Slim" Mooneyham ’34, remained connected to the college that he loved. Mooneyham played basketball and baseball at Wofford, so the scholarship supports a student-athlete on either the college's men's basketball or baseball team.
