UPS CEO gets coveted Horatio Alger Award; still can’t outrank Big Bird – Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The night before he was scheduled to announce his selection as CEO of United Parcel Service a few years ago, David Abney telephoned his daughter Valerie to break the news to her first.

“Papa is going to be on TV tomorrow,” Valerie announced to her 3-year-old who sat nearby. “Would you like to watch?”

Without hesitating, Sam answered, “No. I watch Big Bird.”

Abney shared that story with me just days after returning home from Washington, D.C., where he picked up one of this year’s coveted Horatio Alger medals.

UPS driver helps Houston woman in identity theft case after spotting fake ID – ABC 13

A Houston woman said getting to know her delivery driver saved her from falling victim in an identity theft case.

“My UPS guy said that’s never happened to him before,” Kayla Sickman said. “He’s been doing this for 32 years.”

Last Friday, a doorbell camera captured the moment a woman approached a UPS truck. Before the driver could deliver the package, the woman asked for it.

She showed him an ID that had her photo, and address where the package was supposed to be delivered. Instead of handing it over, the driver questioned the woman because he knew the real homeowner, Sickman.
