Stephens will be returning to BBBS, as he was hired as the assistant director in the late 1980s after graduating from Xavier University with a bachelor’s of social work. After six years, Stephens left BBBS to pursue a masters in social work from the University of Kentucky. Stephens then went on to hold different roles in various social service agencies across the tristate. Most recently Stephens has been working at Reach Out Lakota Food and Clothing pantry for the past four years.

“He has a passion and a heart for not only the mission, but this agency,” said Andrew Tyree, the BBBS board president. “We are very excited for Scott to join BBBS in his new capacity, and for his future contributions to our community and the children we serve.”
