When a young Birmingham college student’s car broke down the night before he was supposed to start his new. till, Carr was not deterred and that did not let him hold back. He set out at midnight and walked through the night to make it to his job.
A Carver High School graduate and U.S. Marine hopeful, Carr walked throughout the early morning hours Friday because he needed, and wanted, the job with Bellhops moving company. He made it to Hoover by 2 a.m. and then to Pelham at 4 a.m.
It was in Pelham that the trek took a surprising turn. Kindness and concern from four Pelham police officers coupled with publicly-posted words of amazement and admiration from the moving company’s clients about Carr’s work ethic and dedication, led to a massive pat on the back Monday from Bellhops CEO Luke Marklin. It eventually caught the eye of the CEO of Bellhops, Luke Marklin, who decided Carr need a new car.
Marklin gifted Carr one of his own vehicles, a barely-driven 2014 ford escape.
