Meet The Sentinel's carriers
Nikayla has been delivering papers for The Sentinel since September of 2015. The sixth grader delivers 13 – 15 papers along Route I. Sometimes her sister Jenna subs for her. Once, a grateful customer gave Jenna a sack of oranges (reportedly, she did share with Nikayla). Nikayla says the hardest part of delivering papers is walking through deep snow.
When she isn't helping The Sentinel, Nikayla enjoys basketball, four-wheelers and animals-mostly horses. Her horse Sonny, now 32 years old, has been with Nikayla since she was six. Nikayla's sister McKenzie, age 5, also rides Sonny, though she has only recently been granted that priviledge.
