Morris Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in 2009 and has been twice chosen as one of WCHL's Hometown Hero Village Pride Award recipients. As an Eagle Scout, Stephen has always had a passion for the outdoors and is heavily involved as a leader with the local Boy Scouts of America.

As a local expert on aging, Stephen has made appearances on Time Warner Cable News, WCHL, UNCTV, WNCN, WCHL and iHeartradio. A few years ago, Stephen and his wife, Cher, made national news when the video of their gender reveal party went viral. Their story was featured on Good Morning America, Fox and Friends, The Today Show, CNN and Inside Edition to name a few. The front page story which recounted the events in the News and Observer was the third most circulated story of 2015 and the most clicked online content in the history of all McClatchy news markets. The hubbub from the video eventually landed them a guest spot on the Ellen Show in April of 2015. They have seven remarkable sons and one daughter: Jackson, Campbell, Sawyer, Houston, Shepherd, Knox, Fisher and Ruby.
