Tyler Stepsis ’94

Tyler Stepsis

From the rough and tumble of gridirons and wrestling mats to classroom excellence, Tyler Stepsis ’94 embarked on a career that would find him saving lives amid the direst of circumstances.  While at SHS Tyler was a standout in football, wrestling and track.  Following graduation he went on to earn a bachelor’s in chemistry at Wittenberg University.  While there he played football, was a student athletic trainer, did a work-study program in athletic training, served as a tutor in chemistry for three years and as president of the Student Senate Hearing Board for two years.  Tyler was then accepted into the University of Cincinnati’s Medical School.  While there he was recognized with several awards, including some presented by classmates.  He also taught classes for interns, was his graduating class’ commencement speaker and presented the Golden Apple Award to the teacher who was most highly regarded by students.  He also made time to serve as a trackside physician at Indy-style races.  Upon earning his medical degree, Tyler received his first “match” or preferred hospital.  In 2002 that led him to Indianapolis where he began his career as an emergency medicine resident.  His work in ER care led in 2017 to his being named medical director of the Michael & Susan Smith Emergency Department at the Sidney & Lois Eskenaze Hospital in Indianapolis.  Observes a fellow alum, “Tyler is a classic example of a young man who received an excellent foundation at SHS and went on to a career serving the greater good.”
