from their website:

“Greg and Essie Del Valle are the directors of the Lakeland Grace Academy school for girls.  After serving in the military, Greg was trained as a police officer and became a deputy sheriff.  Also leading a church youth group of 350 kids in his spare time, God put it on the hearts of Greg and Essie to reach out full-time to help troubled girls.  After first building up another school for girls, they came to Lakeland two years ago.”
