Houston Academy grad starts auto detailing business to avoid student loans
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) – On the corner of Fortner Street and Stonebridge Road you will find Kam’s Car Care.
“I detail everything outside and inside the car, I can shampoo the carpets, clean the stains”, explains Kameryn Mitchell.
Mitchell’s summer business venture is her ticket to no student loans next year.
“Trying to chart your own path, instead of looking to your mom, dad or grandparents for a gift,” says Mike Palmer, Kameryn’s father. “He always wanted to work. He always wanted to have his.
The young automotive designer remains focused on the finished product.
“I like to see the before and after,” says Mitchell. “I like seeing a dirty car and then being able to clean it up and make it look better for my customers.”
Raising almost $2,000 in just three weeks, he thinks his price is right.
Mitchell continues, “Big companies will charge around $100, $150 just for a Sudan or things like that, but I wanted to go to the cheaper side so I could get more customers.”
His commitment sets him apart.
“If I see something that other people have to turn down because they don’t think they can clean it up, I feel like I have the dedication to spend time on things like that and put the details in to do it,” Mitchell said. .
The intense heat didn’t stop Mitchell from reaching his goal of $6,000.
He even cleaned a boat, and this week he’s going to clean the exterior of an airplane.
Mitchell plans to attend Troy University in the fall.
