A young man in Otsego, Michigan, is working hard to ensure his local cemeteries are spotless.
Eighth grader Navene Town loves cleaning headstones and a few years ago turned his passion into a business called Navene Cleans Headstones, WZZM reported Wednesday.
His business idea was born when he began a family tree project and found his five-times great uncle’s grave which made him think, “No one should have that dirty of a headstone,” he recalled.
The boy has cleaned almost 150 headstones and charges $20 for one job. However, he does the work for veterans’ families at no charge.
“It’s very fun seeing the dirty become clean, and I get to learn history about my family tree,” Navene said.
The young entrepreneur has saved some of the money he has made but also donated a portion. He plans on continuing the business and hopes others will consider starting their own.
“Anyone can start a business whenever they want to. You just need to have a good idea,” Navene stated.
