Shixin Li’s career as a Los Alamos Monitor carrier was short but certainly successful. In fact, his efforts awarded him Carrier of the Quarter.
Li started delivering papers on Jan. 17. He will return to his home country, China, today, after spending some time with his son, daughter and grandchildren.
Daughter Jun said, “After the excitement of seeing us, he wanted to do something.”
Things fell into place, Jun said, when she was flipping through a newspaper and spotted an ad for carriers.
Jun, who interpreted for her father, who does not speak English, said that “the best thing is through this job he can interact with Americans. He really appreciates American culture. People are very friendly … very nice to him.”
In fact, in a gesture of gratitude, several customers presented Li with a certificate and Walter S. Chamberlin on Cedric Court invited him and his family to an ice cream social.
He has also received piles of thank-you cards and e-mails from different Monitor subscribers.
“People just react to him because he is so polite, respectful,” Jun said.
Jane Johnson, circulation manager for the Monitor, said every three months a carrier who has provided excellent service is named “Carrier of the Quarter” and receives a $50 reward.
