The United States Postal Service honored Scott Smith posthumously on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, with a Service Award presented to his wife, Tammy Smith, right, of Tarkio. Presenting the award was Tarkio Postmaster Barney Farley, left. Scott worked the rural route for 16 years and was a much-loved member of the Tarkio Postal Service. Not only was he loved by all, but he was extremely dedicated to his work. This past winter, even though he was sick, he came in for a shift. He was given the option to not come in, but with no hesitation, he volunteered to get the job done. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and worked with him.
