Throughout the years, she has given her time to the community of McCloud supporting both the elementary and high schools volunteering in classrooms, sports activities, and fundraisers, and has mentored students. She is known to assist the elderly around the community and is a strong volunteer when it comes to McCloud events such as the McCloud Easter Egg Hunt, Santa at the Museum, and Victorian Christmas, and Halloween activities. She is often found helping with church fundraisers, food drives, and community cleanups. She has been a member of the McCloud Community Recreation Council for many years which sponsors the McCloud Lumberjack Fiesta. 

Stephanie along with her husband Tristan both grew up and graduated in McCloud and are now watching their three children, Kayden, Kayla, and Kayrisa do the same. 

President of the McCloud Community Recreation Council and Fiesta Coordinator, Patty Ballard-Faulkner says, “Miss Stephanie has been a huge addition to the MCRC family. Her energy and “Git er done” enthusiasm has been huge in helping me accomplish the tasks that MCRC does. She is a true McCLoudite and I am so fortunate to call her and her family my friends. Stephanie is one of those people that make MCloud the special little town that it is.” 

The 2023 76th McCloud Lumberjack Fiesta starts Friday, July 28, at 6 pm at Hoo Hoo Park. For a list of the Lumberjack activities go to the McCloud Community Recreation Council/Lumberjack Fiesta Days on Facebook.
