Kevin McCarty

Name: Kevin McCarty

Age: 40

City of residence: Victoria

Current title: Owner of Platinum Pawn & Jewelry and Sam Houston Pawn

First job: I worked for my grandfather at Alvin's Food Store in Port Lavaca.

What it taught me: I learned really hard work. He had me doing everything from bagging ice to sweeping the parking lots. I learned to work hard and to do it right the first time, so you didn't have to go back and do it again.
