The Next Generation

The next generation

The children of today have an abundance of career opportunities from which to choose for their future livelihood. Though the career field has changed somewhat since the birth of the country in 1776, there is one service that has, is, and will remain a strong part of American culture – delivering the mail.

Earlier this month, Murray, UT, city officials asked Murray Station Customer Service Manager Jenifer M. Bertolina-Teper if the Post Office would like to participate in their Career/Vehicle Day. The event, held at Murray High School, gave local third graders the opportunity to see a variety of career options along with the vehicles that accompanied them. Bertolina-Teper knew just the right person to help with the event.

“I asked City Carrier Ben Frost if he would like to help out with this event and to share what he likes about his job, what he needs to know to do his job (writing, memorization, reading, directions, math, etc.) and what he does each day,” said Bertolina-Teper.

“When asked by the kids if he liked his job, Ben would respond, ‘I love my job.’

“Ben also spoke about the importance of safety and reminded each group of children not to run up to a vehicle and to stay clear of postal vehicles. He spoke to about 160 kids and did an amazing job!”
