“She passed away a little more than a year ago and that’s my plan, to spend the money,” Gonzalez said through tears.

Jennifer Flanagan, an assistant principal at the high school, says that while Gonzalez may have lost her mother last year, the school, including the faculty and students, is still a part of her family.

“She is more than just a custodian. She’s more than just a staff member here, she’s family,” Flanagan said. “This is more than a job for Yesy, this is her passion. Her passion is not just for kids, it’s for people.”

“They always compliment how clean our school is and that’s what makes me happy to see how people react when they come to our school. The secret is do everything with love, with your heart and work hard,” said Gonzalez.

Representatives at James Clemons High School and Madison City Schools did not immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s requests for comment.
