Media professionals to receive Quest Awards

Tuesday, March 10, 2009 1:17 AM CDT

Seven people have been chosen to receive the Virginia Betts White Quest Awards from the Missouri Professional Communicators, an affiliate of the National Federation of Press Women.

An awards luncheon will be at noon April 18 at Ces and Judy’s in LeChateau Village in Frontenac. Christine Buck, news reporter for KPLR-CW Channel 11, will host the event. Proceeds from the luncheon support scholarships for journalism and communications students.

The award recipients are Suzanne Corbett, food writer and consultant; Bill Fronczak, public relations director for Mathews-Dickey Boys’ and Girls’ Club; Margaret Gillerman, columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch; Dan Martin, cartoonist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch; Kay Quinn, news anchor at KSDK-Channel 5; Art Silverblatt, Ph.D., communications professor and editor at Webster University; and Mary Ann Wagner, promotions director for the Suburban Journals.

A Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Avis Meyer, Ph.D., professor at Saint Louis University.

The Quest Awards recognize individuals whose work reflects an enduring quest for the highest standards of professional ethics and excellence. Initiated in 1981, the award honors the memory of a member of the Missouri Professional Communicators, Virginia Betts White, who was a leader in communications in the St. Louis area for more than 40 years.

Cost of the luncheon is $50 per person; tables of 10 are available. Reservation deadline is April 11.
