With unmatched dedication, Stephanie Roper was a true champion of the CUGC community. Her cheerful personality and contagious excitement permeated everything she did. CUGC truly would not be where it is today without her invaluable contributions. The unexpected loss of Stephanie has been felt across our community. The support that has poured out from members around the world is just a small indication of how incredible she was.
Starting in 2019, this honor will be renamed to the Stephanie Roper Community Award. This award will be given in memory of Stephanie to the community member who best embodies the community spirit she lived every day.
