Spirit of Detroit - City Council of Detroit

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 and disabled/handicapped persons struggle finding affordable, reliable  and  trustworthy sources for lawn care services.

In memory and celebration of my mother, Dr. Deloris Miller, and my grandmother, I created The LAWN Academy to provide an avenue for young men to contribute to their communities.  The LAWN Academy provides a focused approach to academic achievement and character development.  While not in class, youth participants are provided an opportunity to take care of elderly, veteran and handicapped/disabled residents.  I believe the internal fortitude and character of young men will be further developed through their service to those in need.
