Beckner duo is tops in GR junior sales campaign
Posted: July 18, 2018

Brady and Chase Beckner lead the list of earners in the annual Gazette Record subscription campaign.
And it is an impressive list.
The Beckner boys have earned $220 in cash commissions through three weeks of the campaign. Those earnings do not include additional bonuses the duo will pocket for their efforts, which will push their earnings considerably higher.
The Beckners admirable work ethic is shared by several other Junior Salesmen, who have also turned in stellar efforts.
“This is really a solid group of youngsters this year,” Dan Hammes, publisher of the Gazette Record, said. “Nine in our group of sales reps have earned $100 or more in commissions alone.”
Cody Loe also surpassed the $200 mark, pocketing $202 in commissions after the third week of the sales drive.
Dana and William Dittman ($196), Kelby Harvey ($184) and Kierra and Rozilynn Lockard ($152) round out the top five.
The sales campaign continues through July 25.
