In 1997, a journalist named John Brummett taught his first class, “A Columnist Speaks Out,” at LifeQuest and quickly found a following with our members. Twenty years later, John is still speaking out and drawing nearly 300 people every Wednesday morning for his ever-popular class “Behind the Headlines.”
Each week, John educates, inspires, and entertains LifeQuest members with his perspective on the news of the day - local, national and abroad. The questions, debates, insights and queries exchanged in class, are engaging and challenge our understanding of the world in which we live, often becoming the subject of John’s published articles to a larger audience.
On Thursday, November 9, LifeQuest will honor John for his contribution to our organization with a dinner at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center. Tickets will be available for purchase following an invitation to be mailed in mid-October. We are excited to show John our heart-felt appreciation for all he has done and continues to do for LifeQuest! We hope you will save the date and make plans to join us.

Happy Birthday LifeQuest!
