Employees of the Wichita, KS, Corporate Hills Station recently had a double celebration.

The special event, covered by local news media, cheered the accomplishments of City Carrier Alan Cunningham and Rural Carrier Jeff Doyle. Cunningham has achieved an enviable milestone – 55 years of federal employment. He spent the first four years of his career as a U.S. Marine before beginning his career with the Postal Service in 1965. He has enjoyed his job ever since that time and has no plans to retire anytime soon.

“Alan is a great employee who always strives to deliver the best possible service to his customers,” said Manager of Customer Service Kimberly Lange. “We are proud of his dedication, not only to the Postal Service, but for the four years he served our country as a Marine.”

Doyle’s significant accomplishment is an inspiration to other carriers on the road. Driving for one million miles, or 30 years, is no easy task. It takes paying attention to the road at all times and in any weather condition to avoid an at-fault accident. Lange appreciates Doyle’s commitment to driving safely and was honored to have the chance to present him with the National Safety Council’s Million Mile Safe Driver Award.

“Our carriers deliver the mail in all kinds of weather and face daily hazards on their routes,” said Lange. “So, for Jeff to have driven a million miles without a preventable accident is a tremendous achievement. He stands as a great example not only to our workforce, but to drivers everywhere.
