A former mechanic in Cleveland served as a reminder that it is never too late to follow your dreams.
Carl Allamby, 47, spent years working as a mechanic in East Cleveland, The Plain Dealer reported. By all accounts, he was talented in a garage. He started working with cars as a teen and a career developed.
He was not a stand-out student in high school, according to the report. He had less than a 2.0-grade point average and didn’t go to college.
But he was a hard worker and perfected his craft with cars. He eventually bought a business and dabbled in used-cars sales. He was a mechanic for 18 years.
“He could fix the cars in his sleep,” Tawanah Key, a customer, told the paper.
The married father of two grade-school aged children started to take night classes in 2006 at Ursuline College. He was 40 and still running the business, but remembered the class that changed his life.
He was in biology– a required course– but said the teacher—an interventional radiologist—“lit up the room.” He knew he had to go into medicine, the paper reported.
