About the 2013 Recipients

Adam Carr, Class of 2008

Adam graduated with a B.A. in business JSC in 2008. While a student, he gained exposure to a number of athletic pursuits, including climbing and skiing, but it was cycling that won his heart — so he and his roommate founded a cycling program here and competed nationally for JSC for three years. After graduation, Adam signed on with an elite-level cycling team in Texas, then turned pro the following year, racing with a team in California. Today Adam has moved back to Vermont, where he remains a full-time professional racer and is helping to build a professional Vermont cycling team.
