YOUNGSTOWN -- Twenty-one postal workers, including a clerk who coordinates a program that offers positive after-school activities to city youths, have been honored for outstanding service.
In conjunction with the issuance of the "Mentoring a Child" stamp earlier this month, Darlene Waller, a clerk in the Youngstown Post Office, was recognized for her work as coordinator of "Can You Hang?"
The "Can You Hang?" program is open to kids ages 7 to 18 and is designed to keep them out of trouble.
Last year, Waller helped organize a trip to Disney World for children involved in the program.
Other postal workers recognized for their outstanding service are: Virginia Calhoon, Rita Murdoch, Patricia Zamudio, Rick Schehl, Dave Kausits, Chris Slifka, Tim Kopcash and Connie Moore, clerks; Gail Price, clerk craft; and Claudette King, Henry Gomez, Mary Hazlett, Chuck Shirey, George Popa, Tom Cruickshank, Randy Wamer, John Corey, Jim Saffell, Kathleen Petrilli and Bob Patton, carriers.
District Manager Jordan Small and Youngstown Post Master Patricia E. Davis presented certificates to the honorees Wednesday.
