About the QUEST Honors Program Medallion Society
The QUEST Honors Program relies on individual gifts to support its curriculum and special programs and events. The QUEST Medallion Society is composed of individuals who support the unique multidisciplinary learning experience of QUEST students. The Society brings together alumni, parents, and University faculty and staff who, with their gifts, enhance the quality of the program, the University, and the local region. All funds raised through the QUEST Medallion Society provide direct support for students, academic programs, and co-curricular experiences.
