Stephanie Scott has been in and around youth development work her entire life: first, as the daughter of a public school teacher and coach, then through her professional and volunteer work through organizations like the YMCA and now as the Assistant General Counsel for Cincinnati Public Schools. Stephanie grew up in Cincinnati and obtained her undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University. She earned her JD from the Northern Kentucky Chase College of Law. Prior to becoming an attorney, she worked in the non-profit sector for over 20 years. Stephanie currently serves on the boards of the Campbell County YMCA and her church Fellowship Church of God in Covington Ky. Stephanie is a member of the Black Lawyers Association of Cincinnati and also serves as the Program Chair for the Cincinnati Bar Association (CBA) Women Lawyers Section. She also works on the CBA’s Diversity Committee and is also a steering committee member of the NKY Chamber’s Regional Youth Leadership program. Creating equitable paths and providing assistance to the most marginalized in our society gets to the heart of Stephanie’s passions. Additionally, it's all about the charge to serve “the least of these” that helps her prioritize her purpose. Stephanie is excited to join the Found Village Board as she sees it as an organization where both her passions and purpose meet.
Stephanie currently lives in Alexandria, Ky with her three teenage daughters whom she considers her life’s best work.
