Here at the Squire, we are thrilled to continue offering what is the first job of their lives for boys and girls in downtown Rockford. Every place you see a postal carrier on foot doing deliveries, the Squire delivers with a young man or woman who brings your paper to your door. It is one of the best traditions of a hometown paper and we are proud to be part of the growing-up process for these responsible youngsters.
Carson is 11 years old and a student at North Rockford Middle School (NRMS), where he is enjoying his first year at the school. His birthday is March 22 and his favorite class is math.
“It is challenging but not hard to make it not fun,” Carson said. “I’m trying to make the Principal’s Honor Roll.”
Carson would like to be a teacher when he grows up. He explained why. “It sounds like fun, plus my grandmother and dad were teachers.” His father is currently a teacher with Rockford Public Schools.
Carson said he wanted to be a Squire paper delivery boy because, “I love money a lot and have earned over a thousand dollars so far.”
