Many staff members from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources performed above and beyond their normal duties to ensure the best possible assistance to those affected by the May 2011 tornado in Joplin.

But the behind-the-scenes efforts of Paul Vitzthum from the Southwest Regional Office merited further recognition, said Glennis Evans and Richard Barnes, who nominated him for the State Employee of the Month.

Since the 2003 spring storms which destroyed large portions of Pierce City, Stockton and Battlefield, Vitzthum has served as the office's disaster coordinator.
