Graduating with the Postal Service

Graduating from college is a major accomplishment in life. It combines detailed knowledge with unbridled potential to create a new path for success. Receiving that coveted diploma from a letter carrier makes the moment even more special.

For Marian Barry of Mesa, AZ, receiving her master’s degree from Grand Canyon University was one of the most special days in her life. When she finally received that coveted document in the mail after all of her hard work, she asked her letter carrier to present it to her. Before accepting the degree, Marian walked quickly back to her home and returned shortly thereafter wearing her cap and gown. Her mother snapped a photo of the event to record the cherished moment.

Marian still shows that photograph to everyone she knows, and her letter carrier is happy to have delivered such a valuable and rewarding experience to her customer.
