  1. I would love to nominate the CEO/Excecutive of HATTILOO THEATRE (my boss) for your Caregiver-of-the-year- Award!!! He is the most devoted Father I know, of 2 daughters, (the youngest one has cerebral palsy), and also cares for his aging mother.
    As well known as Ekundayo Bandele is in Memphis (City Hall/Boards,/Committees/Devos Fellowship/ National Theatre Asso…), the care of his Family comes 1st!…especially his special needs Daughter!!! You would not know this simply because to him it’s his personal expression of duty and love. “Selfless service” still needs to be rewarded. Please consider Mr. Ekundauo Bandele. Respectfully, Juanita Clark Stevenson
