Telling the Good News About CPS

Cincinnatus, through its Excellence in Education Panel, is partnering with the Cincinnati Public Schools to highlight good news from the school district. The idea is that Cincinnatus ambassadors will "go viral" on social media sites with stories that showcase CPS.

Stephanie Stoller

Stephanie grew up in Cincinnati, attended Walnut Hills High School, and then graduated from the University of Cincinnati, College of Pharmacy.  She and her husband Arny, also a pharmacist, owned a pharmacy in Covington, Ky.  They sold the pharmacy in 1968 and started a company named Covap Inc. now located in Blue Ash, which sells supplies to pharmacies throughout the U.S.

Stephanie ventured into politics in 1973 when she was appointed to and then elected to Blue Ash City Council.  Since then, she has been elected every 2 years (19 elections), usually unopposed, and she still serves on the Blue Ash City Council today.  During the eighties, Stephanie served three terms as Vice Mayor, and two terms as Mayor of Blue Ash.  She is the first and only woman to ever serve on Blue Ash City Council.

Stephanie knows that she is supposed to slow down a little after the children grow up, leave home, get married, and have children of their own.  She knows she is supposed to enjoy this part of her life sewing, knitting, gardening, and doting on her grandchildren.  But that hasn’t happened.  She is a recent past member of Planned Parenthood Board of Directors and now serves on the Development committee of that organization, and a recent past member of the Blue Ash/Montgomery Symphony Board of directors, and still serves on the Symphony Guild. She is a member of Cincinnatus in which she serves on both the Government panel and the Inclusion panel and is a co-chair of the Inclusion Panel. Stephanie is also on the Board of Woman’s City Club, where she serves as Secretary, and the Board of Woman’s Political Caucus, works full time at Covap and still serves on City Council.
