Orlando, FL -- Among the many awards presented at the three-day U.S. Lawns Annual Conference, held at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, was the U.S. Lawns Hall of Fame.

Steve and Teana Ferguson, husband and wife franchise owners from Hampton Roads, Va., thanked their family, fellow franchisees and the U.S. Lawns Home Office as they joined fellow Hall of Famers on stage to receive their award from Ken Hutcheson.

The Hall of Fame recognizes franchise owners “for outstanding and unselfish contributions to the success and growth of U.S. Lawns.” This recognition is awarded to a franchise business operator who consistently contributes their time, talents and spirit to making their franchise business successful, while also inspiring and leading others to achieve success.

“From the very beginning, Steve and Teana Ferguson were passionate about their careers, their family, and passionate about U.S. Lawns,” said Ken Hutcheson, president of U.S. Lawns. “They charted the course for this recognition many years ago, worked really hard, and made significant changes in their life and business to receive this award. I respect that.”
