Shannon Grayson just wants to be a firefighter. She's not super interested in the fact that she's Owensboro's FIRST female firefighter.

Having worked in law enforcement and public service for a non-profit, Shannon says it's always been her dream to be a firefighter.

But WEVV's Amanda Chodnicki also reports that this is not Shannon's FIRST first.

When she was 12 years old, she became the first girl in Daviess County to play football.

Congratulations to Shannon. We wish her well.
