About Quest for the Best

The "Quest for the Best" Award started on campus 23 years ago by the vice president for Student Affairs. 

Today, James Kitchen, vice president for Student Affairs, continues the tradition of the "Quest for the Best" Awards to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of students and the faculty and staff members who have had a significant contribution to their personal growth.

This award honors not only student leaders, but also faculty and staff members for their dedication, mentorship and genuine concern for the success of their students. As part of the program, faculty and staff members are also honored for their commitment to the development of our students.

The "Quest for the Best" gala banquet was held on April 24 at KPBS Studios. The ceremony was attended by winning students, special guests of each winner and faculty/staff honorees.
