While attending Elkhorn High School, James Manske and Alex Pearson had decided they were going to be going into business for themselves. They started Elkhorn Lawn Care in 2003.  As high school neared an end both James and Alex looked into obtaining scholarships for business but were unable to find any that pertained to entrepreneurship.  Once they graduated they were determined to give back to future individuals of the Elkhorn Public Schools that were like minded and wanted to pursue a dream in owning their own business.

Since creation, the Elkhorn Lawn Care Entrepreneurial Scholarship has awarded 16 individuals with financial assistance as they continued to college.  These students were selected based on their business mindsets and overall drive.  We have no doubt that these students will be future leaders in the economy and will eventually pay it forward to others as their success grows.


Help us build the future!
