Connie Byrd appointed Morenci postmaster 2012.10.10

Morenci has a new postmaster in place following several months without anyone filling the role.

Connie Byrd was appointed to fill the slot last week after serving as officer-in-charge here recently.

The Upper Peninsula native started her postal career in her home town of Harris near Escanaba. She later worked in Dexter and Moscow and for the past 10 years served as postmaster in Clayton.

Byrd lives in Brooklyn but spends most of her summer at Green Valley Campground. Her husband is retired from the United States Postal Service.

The Byrds have six grown children and will have 14 grandchildren by the end of the year.
