Southside ICON of the Week – Stephanie Bramlett

Stephanie Bramlett is the director of seniors at the Beech Grove Senior Center. Her main focus is to provide resources for the seniors and/or their families when they need it and provide a fun and active center for them to enjoy and keep them moving. She also plans and books trips with travel agencies for the seniors to get out and see things and places. 

Bramlett has spent her time and life serving and providing for others: her kids, seniors, and family. She reconnected with the man of her dreams later in life. He played football and she was a cheerleader captain in junior high school, and they had grown up in the same area all their lives. At one time they were neighbors. “Life is great, and I love our life,” Bramlett said.
