CaribWorldNews, NEWARK, NJ, Weds. Dec. 2, 2009: A Haitian-born Princeton University janitor is among those featured in a documentary titled `The Philosopher Kings’.

Josue Lajeunesse works weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. as one of Princeton University’s 220 Building Services janitors and is also a taxi driver, a father, a philanthropist and a community organizer.

Lajeunesse is featured in the documentary `The Philosopher Kings,` which tells the stories of eight janitors at universities across the country and the wisdom found among the custodial staff.  The film is produced by Patrick Shen of Transcendental Media.

The cameras follow Lajeunesse’s work as a lead janitor in Whitman College and other dormitories and his travels to Haiti as he helps bring clean drinking water to his family’s village.
