B.A., Denison University
Citation awarded June, 1990
Like the majority of women of her generation, Betty Williams Lindstrom devoted her energy following graduation from Denison to her family and significant volunteer service.
She was the first president of the P.T.A. Council in Arlington Heights, Illinois, in the largest school district in the state. She was the organizer and founder of the Northwest Suburban chapter of the Chicago Maternity Center and successfully organized fundraising on behalf of the center.
Betty was selected by the board of trustees of Kappa Alpha Theta to serve as the alumnae’s district president for the states of Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. She has participated in many activities of the First Methodist Church of Arlington Heights, Illinois, and organized a fundraising bazaar which raised more money than any event in the history of the church.
In addition, Betty has been a member of the philanthropic organization PEO and an active member of the Juvenile Diabetes and Kids in Distress Associations.
When she moved to Florida in 1972, she became an associate of the L.C. Judd Realty Company, now Stadler Associates. The Judd and Stadler companies have honored her with membership in the Million Dollar Producers Club for 12 years, and she has been a member of the President’s Club, a group whose sales are in the top five percent of the country, for several years.
A member of a family with many Denison connections, she has been a lifelong Denison volunteer. She has served as co-president of the class of 1940, which will be having its 50th reunion this year.
