During Community Day at the North Platte High School in Nebraska, a group of students in a special needs class took the opportunity to go to the North Platte Post Office to visit with Postmaster Pam Erickson and learn more about postal operations. Erickson was thrilled at the chance to teach the students about the Postal Service. She also provided stationery and envelopes so the students could write personal letters to family members.
“As they were (writing letters) you could see the pride they had in writing them,” said Erickson. “It was a great way to promote letter writing with an incredible group of students as well as teach them about various businesses within their community.”
