Long Description:
The sculpture is on a paper boy with a satchel full of rolled up newspapers. There's a dog beside his that seems to be jumping.

The plaque reads: "For much of our community’s history, the young person who delivered The Modesto Bee to our homes has been an enduring symbol of initiative and pluck. The paper boy celebrates the timeless treasure of hope bestowed upon each generation by its youth. May our community always nurture the priceless gift of our children."
