Rodney Smith, Jr., founder of Raising Men Lawn Care Service and 50-Yard Challenge, will be the keynote speaker at the 2020 STMA Conference. The keynote address will take place, Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020, from 11 a.m.-1:15 p.m.

In 2015, Rodney observed an elderly man struggling to cut his yard in Huntsville, Ala., and was inspired to begin cutting lawns for people who needed help. From this beginning, he founded Raising Men Lawn Care Service (RMLS) with the goal of helping people and enlisting girls and boys whose parents want them to learn about volunteerism. RMLS provides free lawn care to elders, those who are disabled, single mothers and veterans who do not have the time, resources and/or money to take care of their yards. Hear his inspirational message, enjoy lunch and meet the 2020 Board of Directors.

The Keynote is sponsored by World Class Athletic Surfaces.
