The Door County Visitor Bureau named Faye Blank as the 2017 Certified Tourism Ambassador of the year earlier this week. Blank, who works at High Point Inn in Ephraim, was honored at the DCVB’s National Travel & Tourism Week breakfast on Wednesday. The award is given annually to an individual that exemplifies excellence in hospitality and customer service. Blank says she was humbled and surprised by the recognition she received.
Blank became the seventh recipient of the award since it was first started in 2011. Wednesday’s program also saw two area high school students receive the DCVB’s Carole Counard Scholarship. The $1,000 scholarships were awarded to Hanna Mallien from Southern Door High School and Lucas Stenzel from Sevastopol High School.
