Springfield, MA is the home of many firsts: it’s the birthplace of basketball, of Dr. Seuss, and now it’s’ also the home to the first female head custodian.  

Julie Colon has held a few different positions in the Springfield Public Schools, but being the head Custodian was not something she originally had in mind. The road has not always been smooth for Ms. Colon, but with her perseverance and passion for the children at Forest Park Middle School, she has turned an unlikely position into one for the history books. Producer Alejandro Cameron brings us the story.
