Inspiring the next generation

Students at the Granger Elementary school in Iowa recently received a special treat. Granger Postmaster Sara Boorman, Acting Grimes Postmaster Rob Cracraft, Post Office Operations Manager Wendy Berg, and Labor Relations Specialist Teri King visited with the second graders to speak about the Postal Service.

The postal team taught the youngers about different types of deliveries and how the team worked hard to serve the children and their families. The kids were particularly interested to hear about future employment opportunities with the Postal Service when they grew up.

To top off the special day, children had a chance to see a Long-Life Vehicle first-hand and learn more about its capabilities. They also met Teri’s dog Rain King.

Teri is a dog bite prevention specialist in addition to her other duties, and appreciated the chance to educate the children about dog behaviors and how to avoid confrontation with a dog. Kids immediately flocked to Rain and treasured the chance to meet him.
