Future career choices


Salt Lake District Network Specialist Tim Stephan recently joined his granddaughter at her preschool and gave a presentation on the Postal Service to the young audience. To enhance their experience, he also brought props including carrier hats, uniforms, and a satchel, as well as postal coloring books for the kids to enjoy.

The children appreciated the unique postal experience and had fun pretending to be employees for the day.

    Back in the late 50s and 60 classes were invited into our PO to see how mail was sorted and delivered. Letter Carriers were also permitted to bring their children on the route for a 2 hour walk to see how their parent supported them. I took my 3 daughters out and my adopted son twice. 2 of my 3 daughters retired with 30 years service. The oldest did not like walking or being on her feet all day so she went on to manage a large warehouse companies office.My son was mentally challenged so it was only to show what I did to support him by making $2.10 per hour. At the end of their 2 hour walk I called my wife by CB radio to pick our child up. It was fun for me and a thrill for our kids to walk with their parent for 2 hours
