Foster to Retire

Mills College Weekly

After coming to know students, faculty, and staff by name, face, and P.O. Box number, Sheila Foster is retiring from her job at the Mills Post Office.

Foster, a postal worker for 35 years, has been at Mills for five years and said, “It’s time to go.”

Foster is looking forward to having time with her family.

“I have a daughter and a daughter-in-law both with babies,” she said. “I’ll help my family, I’ll be a grandma.”

Foster said she has enjoyed her time at Mills very much.

“The people here are just wonderful,” she said. “I’ve enjoyed my stay, the campus is so beautiful, so peaceful and serene.”

Foster also hopes to have time to travel and “do things with the community.”

But she doesn’t plan on leaving Mills permanently.

“I’ll be back to visit, probably with the babies,” she said.

Foster’s last day is April 1.
