Not only is Heidi Clark the 27th postmaster of Carson City — she also is the first female named to the position in the city’s 158-year history.

The public is invited to the official installation for Carson City Postmaster Clark at 8 a.m. Tuesday in the entryway of the Carson City Post Office at 1111 South Roop St.

She also will be officially sworn in by Nevada-Sierra District Manager Belinda Olson, and have her name engraved on the historical plaque.

Clark began her career in 1999 as a clerk in Salt Lake City. She entered a supervisory training program in 2007 and most recently served as station manager for the South Salt Lake City station.

“I am thrilled with the area, the residents and the warm embrace I’ve received from Carson City,” said Clark. “The employees here have a reputation for service that will only continue to get better and better.”

Gov. Brian Sandoval is expected to attend, as are representatives from Congressional, Senate and local government offices. The Carson City High School Color Guard will present the colors.

The Carson City Post Office has 87 employees. Each week, approximately 600,000 pieces of mail are delivered to more than 29,500 businesses and homes.
