Past Featured Ambassadors:
We offer our congratulations to Adeola Adegabi

(Princeton '16), and Caleb Huang
(Yale '16). Adeola delivered three presentations in less than two weeks, Ana devoted three days to giving three presentations at different schools, and Caleb gave two presentations throughout the Home for the Holidays Presentation Campaign, which ran from October 2012 through January 2013. We'd like to thank you and all the Quest Ambassadors who volunteered their time!
Don't forget to congratulate our Featured Ambassadors for their outstanding work during the 2012 College Match cycle: Peter Tran (Emory '14), Yorkbell Jaramillo (U Chicago '16), and Terranisha Hiley (Columbia '15). All of our featured Ambassadors were commended for their professionalism, public speaking skills, range of knowledge about QuestBridge, and warmth toward the students.
Peter led a QuestBridge information booth at the Turner Chapel AME Church College Fair in Marietta, Georgia. The fair was a huge success -- over 550 students received college and scholarship information and guidance.
Yorkbell and Terranisha delivered a Quest Ambassadors presentation to 50 high school seniors at Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, New York that went so well, we received an email from the Director of College Counseling at the high school praising these two Ambassadors.
