Quest on Class of 2018: ‘So many students want to give’

NORTH BRANCH — North Branch’s Quest High School, recently honored as one of only five of 300 schools to be chosen to participate in the Michigan Alternative Education Organization (MAEO) “Footsteps” program, saw a new crop of graduates don the cap and gown Thursday evening.

Quest High School Program Director and teacher Corey Rosser said this year’s grads made the most of their opportuni- Q ties with the school, including volunteerism and civil service projects. “This year’s group of graduates are very kind-hearted individuals,” he said. “We have so many students that want to give, and so many students that would give anyone a helping hand. I’ll miss that about them, I’ll miss their fun-loving nature.”

Rosser attributed Quest’s recognition by MAEO to his students’ impact on the school, and said this year’s group “took advantage of all their opportunities to make (Quest) better than they found it.” By virtue of being a smaller school, it makes the impact of each student that much more important, he said. “Being a small school, we will miss all of our graduates. It’s kind of like your own kids, we love them all in their own unique way,” said Rosser. “Every group is unique. When you replace half of your enrollment each year, what your school becomes is really what they decided to make it.”
