Show and Tell

Niwot, CO, Retail Associate Jean Chapman, Officer in Charge John Wilson and Elan Tell

Niwot, CO, high school junior Elan Tell turned to the Postal Service when his civics teacher assigned everyone in the class to spend a day with a government employee.

Tell shadowed Niwot Officer in Charge John Wilson, who gave him a crash course on USPS.

“My first surprise was that the Postal Service doesn’t use tax money for its operations,” said Tell. “That’s definitely going in my report.”

Tell and his classmates were each asked whether the agencies they researched should be retained in an ever-changing society.

Tell’s verdict? “Yes. Definitely.”
