QUESTA EDUCATION FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES 2016 QUESTA SCHOLAR GRADUATES
Questa Education Foundation is proud to announce that eighteen individuals have graduated in December, 2016 from colleges and universities across the state of Indiana (counties of residence listed). Eleven of those graduating were traditional students who went on to college from high school, five were participating in the contemporary initiative focused on returning students who had delayed their education due to financial barriers, and two were enrolled in a partnership with Parkview Health that assists current employees who wish to further their education.
