Recently, they received 30-year service awards from North Houston P&DC Supervisor of Distribution Alisa Thomas, left, and Manager of Distribution Operations Sherrell Smith.

LaPorte-1LaPorte2.jpg.

On June 21st, La Porte Carriers Irwin Derrick (18 years with USPS) and Joseph Gordon (17 years with USPS) assisted at a vehicle accident on 225 in Pasadena.

They were off duty and heading to a monthly Union Meeting when they came upon the vehicle accident. A woman was hanging out the driver side of her car.  She was pinned underneath the car which was on its side. Carriers Gordon and Derrick, along with a citizen that had also stopped to assist, managed to lift the car upright and off of her.  After the woman was taken by ambulance, the Police Officers on the scene told them that they had saved the woman’s life.

Anthony Jones, Postmaster, La Porte, presented Carriers Derrick and Gordon with an honor certificate on Friday July 15th, and the La Porte Post Office employees celebrated with cake and punch to honor their bravery.

It only takes one

Pearland-1

Pearland TX T-7 Clerk, Belinda Wagner is familiar with the Clerks Care Program. Her previous experience paid off quite well. Belinda works with customers each day and is the front line contact for several lead opportunities. On one particular occasion, Belinda identified one lead that was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Her customer, Jesse Casner is the owner of a firm that sells the liquid for e-cigarettes. Each day, he mails several hundred small First-Class packages. Belinda asked him if he’d like a more efficient mailing solution. He said, “yes” and Belinda contacted USPS Sales Executive Ken Lenzy, and he met Casner and provided with a way to save money and become more efficient with his mailing

Ken worked with Jesse to show him the benefits of using the Postal Service. He also explained how our shipping services would meet his mailing needs. As a result of Ken’s experience and expertise, Jesse began shipping priority and international shipments with USPS. This lead earned more than a million dollars in revenue for the Postal Service. All it took was one clerk, who submitted one lead. In the photo, Belinda Wagner (center) accepts a Deliver the Brand certificate from Senior Sales Executive Ken Lenzy and Business Development Specialist, Pamela Hatchett-Finley.
