LEWISTON – Richard Seamon graduated recently from the associate supervisor program at the U.S. Postal Service. Seamon had been with the service for 11 years before completing the four-month training program, graduating with 10 other management trainees.

A Lewiston resident, Seamon has held a number of positions during his postal career. He started as a rural carrier associate in Mount Vernon, then worked as a casual clerk and city letter carrier in Bangor and Camden.

He worked as a clerk and rural carrier associate in Bath, as a city and rural letter carrier in Rockland, delivered an auxiliary route in Vienna and worked as a rural carrier associate in Belfast.

Before taking the postal exam in 1999, he also served as a mail handler in Bangor. After passing the exam, he worked as a part-time flexible employee in Portland.

Recently he has been an acting customer service supervisor at the Rand Road and South Portland letter carrier annexes while learning about a number of postal operations.

“When I was 6 years old, I decided I wanted to be a letter carrier,” said Seamon, “and since coming here, I’ve learned there’s a world of opportunity available to employees in the Postal Service.”

Seamon was born in Pittston, Pa., and was raised in Vienna. He graduated from Mt. Blue High School in Farmington in 1989 and studied business at the University of Maine in Farmington and in Augusta before joining the USPS.

As a graduate of the program, Seamon will supervise city and rural letter carriers and customer service personnel. He will be stationed at the South Portland letter carrier annex.
