Background Taking care of the elderly, by providing lawn care services, has been a joy of mine since my youth. I cultivated my lawn care skills by manicuring my grandmother's lawn, the late Ms. Rosie Henderson, who encouraged me through her positive words and prayers. I learned at an early age that several elderly residents and people with disabilities struggle to find affordable, reliable, and trustworthy sources for lawn care. In memory and celebration of my mother, Dr. Deloris Miller, and my grandmother, I created The Lawn Academy to provide an avenue for youth to increase their academic competency and contribute to their communities. The Lawn Academy provides a focused approach to academic achievement and character development. Youth participants are provided an opportunity to take care of elderly, veteran, and handicapped/disabled residents by providing lawn care services, free of charge. I believe the internal fortitude and character of youth will be further developed through their service to those in need. Eric L. Miller
