A Northern New England District employee recently showed his postal pride by setting a personal record for quickly sorting mail.

Nashua, NH, Clerk Frank LaRoche inducted 1,620 mailpieces in one hour on a parcel sorting machine last week — breaking his previous record of 1,506 pieces.

Typically, the machine is fed about 700 pieces an hour.

“Frank is the epitome of an engaged employee,” said P&DC Manager Kristen Kiernan. “He rallied his co-workers into a throughput competition and takes great pride in the speed of his work.”

LaRoche was recognized by postal leadership for his productivity and presented with a “We Are #PostalProud” T-shirt.

Said Kiernan: “His example of being #PostalProud demonstrates how productive USPS can be by working more efficiently to serve our customers better.”
