First Class Alaskan Postmaster Retires

Alaska's Peninsula Clarion reports local postmaster, Carol Joyce, shown here, is retiring after more than 2 decades of service. She's been at the Kasilof, Alaska Post Office for 22 of the 32 years she has been a postal employee.

Before Kasilof, Joyce initially worked for 11 years in the Clam Gulch Post office, or "the tiny shack that served as one for many years" writes reporter Joseph Robertia.

Joyce is quoted as saying, "I'm a trainer for the post office, so I've worked in darn near every village in the state." She went on to say one of her fondest memories from her many years of work was being part of a project to help postal employees in remote areas of Alaska.

"The pinnacle of my whole career was working on a diversity project with other postmasters from the Yukon-Kuskokwim River Delta. It dealt with cross-cultural understanding and postmasters helping each other. The project won a national award from more than 1,000 other projects," she said.
