Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell (AL-07) announced today that legislation she sponsored to honor the legacy of former Postmaster Robert Ingram by renaming the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 115 Nicol Avenue in Thomasville, Alabama, as the Postmaster Robert Ingram Post Office was signed into law.
“Postmaster Ingram served the Thomasville community for over 30 years, first as a Marine and later as Postmaster,” Rep. Sewell said. “He was a beloved public servant who not only dedicated himself to his own job, but also to the training of new postmasters. The Postmaster Robert Ingram Post Office is a fitting reminder of Mr. Ingram’s immense impact on the community.”
“The family is deeply grateful for the recognition of Bob Ingram’s commitment to and love for his community,” said Mr. Ingram’s son, Bobby Ingram. “This acknowledgement will allow his legacy to continue for years to come.”
“Bob was a fixture in our community. Every man, woman, and child knew him, his warm smile and happy greeting every time he entered the Thomasville post office,” said Thomasville Mayor Sheldon Day. “Bob was a true example of what it means to be a public servant, and this is a fitting tribute to the legacy of his humble and dedicated service to our city.”
