St. Louis, MO – The Pesticide Stewardship Alliance (TPSA) held its annual conference virtually in February and Wendy Sue Wheeler, Washington State University, received the President’s Award from Taryn VanWassenhove.

Wendy Sue has been a member of TPSA for several years and has served on the Board of Directors including as President and is currently serving as Treasurer.  In addition, she has been actively involved with the annual meeting planning committee.

President VanWassenhove said, ”Wendy Sue has been there to answer my questions and offered suggestions throughout 2021.  With COVID-19 restricting travel and in-person meetings, TPSA had to reconsider holding the annual conference and how we could still hold a conference.”

“Wheeler’s experience, along with her knowledge of TPSA, was invaluable to me throughout the year,” concluded VanWassenhove.

Wendy Sue Wheeler serves as a Pesticide Coordinator and Educator for Washington State University with a focus on Pesticide Resources and Pesticide Safety Education.

The Pesticide Stewardship Alliance (TPSA), founded in 2000, is an organization of federal, state and local governmental agencies, educational and research institutions, public organizations, private corporations and individuals that are actively involved in different aspects of pesticide stewardship.  The goals of TPSA are to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and longevity of various pesticide stewardship efforts.
