Dr. Jim Dufek, professor of mass media at Southeast, was honored with the Silver Medal Award this spring by the Cape Girardeau Chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF).

The Silver Medal Award recognizes men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence, and responsibility of social concern.

“I’m extremely grateful and humbled by this recognition from the Cape Chapter of the AAF. There are many talented producers, writers, and artists in this organization, and I’m honored to work with them on occasion,” Dufek said. “As a professor, I have the great pleasure of doing something that I truly enjoy and the satisfaction of bridging the gap between student and professional storytellers. There’s always a demand to craft a useful message for a business, non-profit, or start-up, and it’s a privilege to guide students as they work in our community to produce a promotional program.”
