Quest of the Keys

Scotty Sanders, author of “Quest of the Keys,” and founder of the Quest of the Keys non-profit organization, recently visited four schools in the Ouachita Parish that are involved with the organization’s pilot Quest of the Keys character development program. During his visit, Sanders spoke with more than 350 students who are participating in the program. A West Monroe, La., native now transplanted to Dallas, Texas, Sanders interacted with more than 350 students and educators who are involved with the Quest of the Keys organization’s pilot character development program. Fueled by his passion to encourage and empower the next generation to live well, Sanders originally penned his fantasy novel with the hope that the education system would use it as a teaching tool for personal development. “That is why I am excited about the prospect of educators incorporating “Quest of the Keys” into the curriculum,” Sanders explained. “By doing so, the curriculum will promote personal growth, continuous learning, responsibility, leadership development, integrity, honor and clear purpose.”

Quest of the Keys

Sanders, who has taught the keys found in Quest of the Keys all over the world…from Fortune 500 companies to fifth graders... left inspired by his visit to the Ouachita Parish schools. “My book, “Quest of the Keys,” was birthed out of my desire to give young people an opportunity to discover their purpose, unlock their potential and live with passion,” he said. “I am very impressed with the students’ engagement and intelligent questions,” Sanders stated. “One of my favorite things in life is to speak to young people and see them encouraged.”

Quest of the Keys was recently awarded a $5,000 grant from State Farm to help launch the pilot character development program. The Quest of the Keys non-profit organization was founded to provide character development resources to a greater number of schools and other institutions. The goal is to have the program ready for full implementation in schools, afterschool programs, and other youth development organizations nationwide by school year 2017-18. The full character development program will include a game app, videos and many other resources.
