Congrats to Susan Reese for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: OC Human Relations
Honoree Category: Human and Community
Why Nominated: “Susan (Sue) Reese is a true gem-one of those volunteers who goes above and beyond to support the causes she cares about. We are more than lucky to call Sue a leader, donor, volunteer and friend of OC Human Relations. Sue has been involved with OC Human Relations for over two decades. She is an incredible volunteer who has donated thousands of hours of her professional time as a graphic designer, a volunteer member of the Board and a Community Partner without limits.
Having grown up in Orange County, Sue’s commitment to making our community a better place runs deep, and it is evident. Sue provides outstanding leadership, models true dedication and is the best Board member any organization could ask for. She is the first to raise her hand to participate in staff development programming like our three-day Restorative Justice Training, special projects like our annual hate crime report, trainings like Annenberg Foundation’s Alchemy leadership development and other efforts related to our work. Sue is instrumental with our annual report, annual dinner preparation and special projects, such as our recent 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act history exhibit that she designed to tour the county. She adds love and creativity to everything she touches. Sue is not afraid to voice her concerns about injustice nor to be vulnerable in times of meaningful dialogue around critical human relations issues. There isn’t anything that Sue wouldn’t do to help OC Human Relations be a successful organization. We are so proud to have her as part of our organization and are grateful for the opportunity to recognize her outstanding contributions to Orange County and to OC Human Relations.”
