When the U.S. government teacher gave the assignment to the class, Niwot, CO, High School Junior Elan Tell knew where he was going for his research: The U.S. Postal Service.

The assignment was to spend a day shadowing a government worker. The student was then to report back to the class whether the government function should be retained in a changing society and shrinking revenue.

Tell connected with Niwot OIC John Wilson who allowed the student to spend the day with him.
