Tocqueville Award Recipients

Duane and Jill Meyer were awarded the 2022 Tocqueville Award on October 20, 2022.  They have been active volunteers in our community for many years and are involved with United Way of Marathon County through service dedication.  Duane retired earlier this year following a 29-year career with Nationwide. He served on numerous committees and for United Way of Marathon County for more than a decade. He was the Board President in 2017 following his service on the Campaign Cabinet, Audit Committee and Executive Committee. Jill’s love of flowers presented many opportunities to teach children about flowers and gardening. They often delivered bouquets of flowers during the pandemic. As parents, they taught their children the importance of volunteering at the local food bank and today are proud grandparents to two grandchildren in Detroit and two in Wauwatosa.
