For the last decade Rod Wilkerson aka Pete has been a fixture at the Harris County Civil Courthouse.
He’s been on the steps of the county government building for the last ten years shining shoes.
He says it’s a trade he learned at 7 years old.
Wilkerson says it was back in 1992 when he made his shoe shining gig full time.
The 61 year old says there was a time when he wasn’t on the right path and he didn’t do what was right.
Now Wilkerson says, “I’m living right and good.”
You can catch him shining shoes Monday thru Friday downtown on Caroline Street!
