Jim Ziebold received the Industry Excellence Award in the colleges and universities' category at the National Postal Forum. Jim attended the awards ceremony in San Francisco on April 21. The award recognizes creative and effective use of postal services with emphasis on continued improvement of systems, efficient operations, and mail systems integrity. The national awards are by division, with only two awards in each division given out each year. Our congratulations go to Jim and the staff of Postal and Parcel Services.

Congratulations! They assumed their respective offices at the APPA annual meeting in Salt Lake City in July. Thanks for your continued willingness to serve the APPA membership.
Each year thousands of young people come to ISU to earn a degree in their chosen field. In addition, many of our coworkers are also working towards a degree.
Think how busy your schedule is with the normal activities of home and work. Add to that burden 3 to 9 hours of courses and the associated study time and you can begin to understand the additional stress and effort involved with furthering your education.
We would like to take a minute to recognize our coworkers who are both students and employees. There are too many to list individually and we would hate to forget anyone. So, if one of your coworkers is a current or past employee/student, take a minute to tell them, "Great job and keep up the hard work!".
In addition, many full-time students work at FP&M throughout the academic year and into the summer. They are becoming our salvation with our ever increasing work load. Thanks for helping us out! We hope you find the experience worthwhile and that you will remember your time at FP&M far into the future.
