Thiensville resident receives DNR award

The Department of Natural Resources named Sandra Manthei of Thiensville as the 2010 recipient of DNR's Rebecca Wallace Memorial award.

Manthei is a 19-year veteran of the department. She has worked at a variety of jobs in the DNR Southeast Region, including customer service supervisor, administrative assistant to the regional water program and most recently as environmental grants specialist.

The Rebecca Wallace Memorial award was created by the Natural Resources Board in 1997 following the death of Wallace and her husband in an automobile accident. At the time of her death, she was chief of the agency's Runoff Management System. Each year the award recognizes a DNR employee making the greatest contribution toward improving relationships with stakeholders or toward mentoring department staff.

"I've been very fortunate in my career with the department," Manthei said. "I've been given the opportunity to learn from all the dedicated staff I've had the pleasure of working with."

DNR Secretary Matt Frank presented the award to Manthei at the Jan. 27 Natural Resources Board meeting in Madison.
