Stephanie Love has lived and been active in North Memphis, Millington and unincorporated areas of Shelby County all of her life. Stephanie was raised in Millington and attended Millington Central High School. She became pregnant while in high school and dropped out. When her son T’Andre Love, now 20, started preschool, Stephanie realized that she needed an education herself if she was going to support him. She decided to get her GED and a cosmetology license. Stephanie Love is now a successful cosmetologist working in Raleigh. She is also a faithful member of Christ In You Faith Temple located in Raleigh where she serves as an usher. Stephanie Love and her four beautiful children, T’Andre 20, Ke’Ante 17, Romescia 11 and Da’Zyria 8, live in the Frayser community. Some of
Stephanie’s favorite activities include reading, spending time with family and friends, volunteering, and being involved in church. Stephanie Love’s experience includes having served as Vice Chair of the Shelby County Head Start Policy Council. She also served as a volunteer for Delano Head Start. As a parent at Delano Head Start she saw firsthand the issues of having a parking lot which accommodated 20 vehicles but the center serviced 200 students with a staff of nearly 30. This motivated her to begin directing traffic to ensure the safety of the children and parents and was able to effectively advocate for an improved parking lot. Stephanie has also served as Secretary for the Parent Teacher Association at Delano Optional School and was a member of the Frayser High school PTSA (Martin Luther King Preparatory School).
Stephanie Love also served as Vice President of the Frayser Neighborhood Council- a community group that was born out of President Obama’s Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative in 2013. Stephanie was elected to the Frayser Neighborhood Council as a resident on May 4, 2013 and was later selected as Vice President by the group. The Frayser Neighborhood Council has had success in helping to improve the quality of life in Frayser. Some of those successes include effectively advocating Memphis City Council for improvements to Denver Park- a once gang ridden park taken back by neighbors, getting approval from Memphis City Council for new sidewalks in front of Corning Elementary, stopping a new trailer park development, developed Frayser 2020- a plan to improve quality of life in Frayser and planning of the Frayser Town Center.
