In a ceremony at City Hall on Friday morning, the main Memphis post office building at 555 South 3rd St. was formally redesignated in honor of the late Kenneth T. Whalum Sr., pastor emeritus of Olivet Baptist Church, former city councilman, and longtime official of the U.S. Postal Service. Presiding over the dedication was 9th District congressman Steve Cohen, who introduced the enabling legislation, H.R. 2587, that became law on October 24 of last year, one day after the death of Rev. Whalum.
