“Ahhh. Now I’m set. I’ve found the place where I’ll work till I retire,” Tammie Sullard recalls thinking when she took her first U.S. Postal Service job at 27, as a letter carrier for the Antioch Post Office near Liberty.

Sullard spent 30 years with the Postal Service — 28-and-a-half of those in Richmond — working her way up from letter carrier in Antioch to postmaster here, a job she assumed in 2000.
On her last day, April 27, her boss and employees threw a festive morning shindig and an all-day open house.
