JUDGE JOINS WENDY'S BOARD

 DUBLIN, Ohio, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the most honored former judges in the United States has accepted a position on the board of directors of Wendy's International (NYSE: WEN).
 "We are fortunate to have Judge Ernest S. Hayeck join the board," said Jim Near, Wendy's chief executive officer and chairman. "He brings a broad breadth of experience, and has been honored many, many times for his accomplishments. Hayeck recently retired after 23 years of service in the Massachusetts judiciary.
 "The judge's working relationships worldwide with Black, Asian and Hispanic communities have gained him wide respect. In the United States, he has been a tireless worker on behalf of the rights of women and minorities in law and in business," Near added.
 "We're proud to have Judge Hayeck, and look forward to his contributions to Wendy's International."
 In 1992, Worcester, Mass. District Court Judge Hayeck was honored by the American Bar Association with its highest honor, the Franklin Flaschner Award, recognizing him as the top judge in the United States.
 Hayeck is a member of the ABA's Commission on Opportunities for Minorities in the Profession and the association's Judicial Administration Division Task Force on Minorities in the Judiciary.
 He has also served on the board of governors of the Hispanic National Bar Association and with the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association. He is a member of the National Bar Association, a group established for African-American lawyers before the ABA admitted them.
 Before becoming an attorney, Hayeck was a scientist and professor.
 Receiving a master's degree in chemistry from Boston University in 1950, Hayeck taught chemistry and physics as an assistant professor at Stonehill College near Boston. In 1952, he enrolled full-time in Boston University Law School, while maintaining his teaching position. He earned his law degree and passed the bar in 1955.
 Hayeck is a student of etymology, the study of the evolution of language, speaks fluent Arabic and has studied a half-dozen languages.
