Jackie Hill retired from the US Postal Service after 27 years of service, the most recent as postmaster at Versailles. She began her career as a clerk in the Vevay Post Office where she worked until being promoted to Postmaster of Glencoe, KY, in 1990.
Hill has served as Postmaster of Dillsboro, Carrollton, KY, Cynthiana, KY, and Florence, IN, in addition to supervisory positions in Florence and Covington KY.
Hill says many changes have taken place during her 27 years, most changes having to do with computer technology. One item of interest is that when she began her career, the USPS delivered to approximately 90 million addresses. Today, they deliver to more than 151 million addresses, which definitely has an impact on the cost of postage stamps, according to Hill.
One of the more positive changes she has seen in her career has been the introduction of the self-adhesive stamps.
Jackie and her husband Bill, also a recent USPS retiree, look forward to traveling, spending more time with grandchildren, and other community involvement.
Alan Weiss current postmaster at Rising Sun is acting postmaster at Versailles for now.
