Name: Christina Barnum
Occupation: Custodial staff
Where (and when) she works: In the Middle School building after school
Reason profiled: The staff of The Phoenix Inquirer chose to profile Ms. Barnum as a follow-up to our “Behind the Scenes” article, which discussed members of our community who help us without receiving much recognition. Because Ms. Barnum works after school, students do not often get to thank her for the effort and energy she puts into keeping our building clean and tidy.
Ms. Barnum’s message for the community: “Everyone should take pride in their community for a better upliftment of the entire city.”
