Many high school students mow lawns to make some money. But not many of those teenagers turn the mowing service into a career path.
David Maness, BBA ’02 and son of Dean Terry Maness, started a lawn service in high school “to just make some money.” When he went to Baylor, he kept the business. And before long, it began to grow. By senior year, Maness decided to “step out in faith” and make the business his full-time career after graduation. The lawn mowing service had turned into a successful landscape, construction and irrigation company.
