USPS worker re­tires af­ter 33 years of work


Clint. W. Har­wood of Span­ish Fork is re­tir­ing af­ter 33 years of work for the U.S. Postal Ser­vice at of­fices in Utah County.

Har­wood be­gan his USPS ca­reer in 1984 when he had an op­por­tu­nity to ap­ply and it seemed like a good ca­reer op­por­tu­nity for him. Since then, he has worked in Provo for 13 years, Orem for one and a half years, and at the Span­ish Fork of­fice for 18 and a half years.

His job du­ties have in­cluded work­ing as a postal car­rier, de­liv­ery su­per­vi­sor, dis­tri­bu­tion clerk and sales and ser­vice as­so­ciate with most of his du­ties at the front counter.

“When I first started, I en­joyed be­ing out­side and get­ting to serve those peo­ple on my route and get­ting to know them by name,” Har­wood said. “Even­tu­ally as I got older, I de­cided I would like to be in­doors and out of the harsh win­ter weather and hot sum­mer weather. I al­ways wanted to be back in my home­town, so when trans­fer­ring to Span­ish Fork as a sales/ser­vice as­so­ciate, it gave me the op­por­tu­nity to serve the cus­tomers that I knew and get to know those that I didn’t.”

Har­wood said his fa­vorite parts of the job were help­ing cus­tomers and mak­ing new friends, adding that the thing he will miss most in leav­ing the USPS will be the friend­ships he has made while serv­ing the peo­ple of Span­ish Fork.
