From last month’s Alive! story on Joseph Cornejo and Chermaine Fontenette, RCTO, Pubic Works/Sanitation.

He read it here first in Alive! – a story on himself, the first of his young life.

Last month, we brought you the story of Joseph Cornejo, 4, and his friendship with Chermaine Fontenette, RCTO, Public Works/Sanitation and Environment out of the East Valley Yard, and Club Ambassador. Chermaine began stopping by Joseph’s house last summer. They’ve been friends ever since.

“Since he turned one, he has loved garbage trucks,” says his mother, Sara Panameno. “It’s a blessing Chermaine crossed paths with him,” Sara says. “She’s a celebrity to him.”

Joseph Cornejo, 4, reviews the story on him in the March Alive!

As soon as the family’s copy of Alive! arrived, Joseph looked for the article on himself and was happy to see it. “Joseph’s response was that it ‘is so adorable!’ He loved looking at the article. It means a lot to all of us,” Sara told Alive!

You’re welcome, Sara and Joseph
