The Garrett Wade Stephens Award was established to encourage others to follow their dreams and passions of their own creative and artistic abilities both through educational and experience based opportunities throughout the community (tuition assistance, Four Mounds Youth Adventure Day Camp and other various organizations in the community).
Garrett passed away in 2014 unexpectedly in his sleep at the age of 32. Garrett was the owner of Key City Kustom (a body shop specializing in custom paint, body and fabrication). He was extremely talented in what he did and held a true passion for creation. He loved to work with his hands and enjoyed the simple things in life.
