Secily Rees Receives Community Involvement Award
Rees is a longtime volunteer for the Topeka Civic Theatre and the Lawrence Theatre. Rees’ passion for theater began at the age of six when she auditioned for her first community theater production at the Topeka Civic Theatre. Since then she has been involved with countless productions, helping in multiple aspects from being on stage, to designing wigs, costumes, painting sets, helping with fundraiser initiatives and children’s arts programs.
“I hope to inspire future generations. I believe that we can connect our community through art and laughter,” said Rees.
In addition to her work in the theatre, Rees was selected to Leadership of Lawrence Class of 2018 where they adopted 70 low-income families providing them with a nice holiday dinner for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
