Henderson, CO, Rural Carrier Shauna Galicia

Henderson, CO, Rural Carrier Shauna Galicia recently helped coordinate a visit to a local preschool. The kids at John W. Thimmig Elementary School displayed both awe and curiosity when Galicia showed them a rare look inside a postal vehicle and her USPS satchel. The youngsters also enjoyed talking with Galicia about her duties as a carrier.

“The Henderson Post Office is proud to have such a generous and thoughtful employee on its staff and admires this contribution to the community,” said Postmaster Crystal Gutierrez.

Beyond the city’s interest in keeping Schneider’s friendly, courteous service within the local community, Schneider, a U.S. Navy veteran, also serves the community’s youth. Recently, she hosted a Learning Center tour of her office, and supplied the children with crayons and a coloring sheet so they can design their own stamp.

“She’s going to hang them up in the office once they get them back to her,” Hoefer said regarding the kids’ artistic stylings. “She is a rock star.”
