Cody Marshall

HARD WORKER: Twelve-year-old Cody Marshall poses October 29 holding two awards he received in the Bright Ideas Showcase & Contest of the 2011 Marketplace for Kids program. Cody is a sixth grader at Timber Lake Middle School and a member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. He placed second in the Business Category for Grade 5 and received a Special Award for Best New Business Idea. In 2010 he started "Lawn Patrol" in his hometown Timber Lake, SD, providing lawn mowing and trimming services. In the summer of 2011 he added customers, improved his marketing, offered raking services and tripled his income to over $1,500. Next year he plans to expand the customer base even more, hire employees and add snow blowing. Cody said he was proud of the awards because his hard work was recognized. Shirley Dykshoorn was the presenter during the Marketplace of Ideas annual conference in Bismarck.
