Squire applauds carrier Brad Van Gorder

January 27, 2011 // 0 Comments

Brad Van Gorder is a student at East Rockford Middle School, who has a birthday coming up next spring on May 20. Van Gorder is a valuable member of the Squire team, who sees to it that the readers on his route receive their paper each week, rain or shine. Van Gorder said his favorite class is wood shop. He said he likes it “because you get to build so many cool things and the things you make can be amazing.” For his future career, Van Gorder has aspirations of becoming an animator and game designer. During his time at the Squire, Van Gorder’s route has been very well serviced and not one person has ever complained about the job he has done. Staff members at the Squire are always happy to see him as he picks up his papers each week. “I have been a carrier at the Squire now for four years,” the industrious young man stated. “I wanted to be a carrier because I wanted to make some money.” Our grateful thanks to Brad for choosing to join our team, and bringing Rockford its weekly news.
