College student Walter Carr started his first day with Bellhops Moving Company the same day that Jenny Lamey and her family were moving and had hired nine of Bellhops’ movers.
On moving day and Walter’s first day on the job, Walter was escorted to Jenny’s home by a local area police department. Jenny discovered that Walter's car had broken down the night before. Walter walked 20 miles overnight to get to work on his day one.
Jenny, an extremely happy customer, posted her appreciation for Walter on Facebook, and it went viral overnight. His story of determination was picked up across major news outlets worldwide. Shortly after, Bellhops CEO Luke Marklin heard about Walter’s story. Marklin was so inspired by Jenny's Facebook post and Walter’s determination and strong work ethic, that he gifted Walter his personal vehicle so Walter could get to class and work.
