Two SDSU business students were among the 10 undergraduates recognized as SDSU's 2013 "Quest for the Best" winners.

Management junior, Mariah Kelly, and finance junior, Joshua Morse, were honored with one of the university's most prestigious student achievement awards at a gala award dinner held on April 26 at KPBS studios.

Now in its 27th year, "Quest for the Best" honorees are chosen for their outstanding achievements in:

  • Academics
  • Involvement in student organizations and campus activities
  • Community service
  • Leadership ability

All eligible students must be currently enrolled at SDSU, have a 3.0 GPA or better, and have completed a minimum of 75 units of course work.

Kelly of Compton, Calif. was recently elected as the vice president of financial affairs of the SDSU Associated Students and she currently serves as president of the Afrikan Student Union. She was a top speaker in her Toastmasters' group, founding president of the K.O. Hip-Hop Team and was chosen to serve as a student representative at all SDSU presidential and University House events.

San Diego native Morse is the newly elected president of the SDSU Associated Student Council, is a member of the SDSU surfing team as well as Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. He is also a member of the Associated Students Environmental and Safety Committee and Peer Leadership Consultants and serves on the University Affairs Board.

Students receiving the "Quest for the Best" award chose one SDSU faculty or staff member as having made most positive impact in their academic career and they, in turn, were also honored with a Faculty/Staff "Quest for the Best" award. Kelly's chosen faculty member was Tita Gray, management lecturer at the College of Business Administration and Morse's choice was Josephine Mojica, assistant director for SDSU's Educational Opportunity Programs and Ethic Affairs.
