Quincy has a new postmaster.

Susan Dorrough, who has been officer in charge in Quincy since November, became the postmaster on Saturday, according to Valerie Welsch, the U.S. Postal Service's regional spokeswoman.

"There's a great group of people here at the Quincy Post office, and it's with great pride and humility that I take on the responsibilities of the postmaster," Dorrough said.

Dorrough, 41, joined the USPS in 1997 as a rural carrier associate in Chesterfield, Mo. She was promoted to supervisor of customer service in Quincy in January 2006. She was promoted to postmaster in Mexico, Mo., in 2012 and has been in Quincy since shortly after the retirement of postmaster Peggy Beck last year.

Quincy has a head count of 90 full-time employees and 11 part-time workers.

Dorrough lives in Payson and has three children. She does volunteer work at Birthright in Adams County and is on the Unmet Needs Committee with the United Way of Adams County.
