Driver Ian L. and Fairmont, WV Team Go Above & Beyond

August 11, 2020

Republic Rockstars positively impact the community they serve. They not only deliver superior service, but they go out of their way to brighten someone’s day. This week, we’d like to recognize Driver Ian L. for going above and beyond to give two young boys on his route a day to remember.

Four-year-old Isaac and 12-year-old and Evan are huge fans of Driver Ian and our big blue truck. They never miss an opportunity to come out and watch Ian whenever he arrives on their street.  Recently, Ian and our Fairmont, WV team surprised the boys with a custom Republic uniform, complete with gloves, hat and sunglasses. When Ian presented the gifts, the boys were thrilled. Thank you, Ian and team for being heroes in your community!

As our Republic Rockstar of the week, we had a few questions to get to know Ian a little better – check out his responses below.
