Funk receives IFEC's Betty Bastion Award

Linda Funk '76, director, National Product Communications Wisconsin Milk Market-ing Board, received the Betty award at the International Foodservice Editorial Council's (IFEC) national conference in November 1995. She is only the fifth recipient of the award out of the council's membership of nearly 200 communications professionals. Compared to the five previous winners, she is the most junior member to be honored with the Betty -- a salute to the volume and value of her contributions to the group.

The Betty Bastion Outstanding Service Award -- created in 1991 to annually recognize one individual who has given unstintingly of his or her time, energy and talents to the betterment of IFEC and the food service communications field -- is IFEC's "Oscar." The award honors Betty Bastion, a charter member and long time executive director of the organization.

The IFEC is a 40-year-old national organ-ization of food service communications professionals. The group's mission is to improve the overall quality of business-to-business communication within the foodservice industry and to encourage high professional and aesthetic standards for the profession.
