Sean Rakers of New Baden has been named advertising sales representative for The Leader-Union.
A familiar face to many basketball fans in the Vandalia area, the 6-foot-7-inch Rakers played basketball for Trenten Wesclin High School and McKendree University, where he received all-conference and all-America honors. He was voted team MVP in 2012.
At The Leader-Union, he joins Advertising Manager Lisa Moore in serving the advertising needs of area businesses.
Rakers earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and is currently taking night classes at McKendree toward a master’s degree in business administration.
