A fierce defender of anyone marginalized. A creative artist. A master at helping neighbors who may be struggling. A deep-souled empath who connects with everyone she meets. These traits make Stephanie Suggs our Citizen of the Month—because she uses her talents and skills to serve.
Whether it’s teaching art journaling as spiritual practice (check that out on Facebook @AtlantaCommunityArtsCenter) or helping to keep a family housed or feeding someone down on their luck, Stephanie always puts the other person first.
A graduate of Queens University in Charlotte, Stephanie also has a master’s in creative writing. Her commitment to her community started right out of college and her entire career has been in non-profit work, from Atlanta to California and New Mexico. Stephanie came home to Tucker a few years ago. A graduate of Henderson High School and long-time member of Tucker First United Methodist, Stephanie’s roots grow deep here. Those roots make her service to our community even more personal for her, striving every day to make Tucker a great place to live, work, play, and pray. Lucky for our city, she found a home at NETWorks Cooperative Ministry, where she is the Program Director. Part of her responsibilities include recruiting and managing volunteers. Get to know Stephanie by volunteering! You can check out the current needs at
Thank you, Stephanie, for all you do for our community and its members. You are truly an asset to Tucker and we salute you as Citizen of the Month.
