Gifting & Requests Prior to Graduation

Gifting a Yarborough also requires an authorization letter that can be attained by following the same steps listed above.  These requests will not be processed until AFTER Q-course graduation.  Even if you want it to be a surprise, you must wait for the candidate to graduate.
