This high-profile event will be held to kick off the 2020-2021 school year and will feature alumni guest speaker Spencer Lott, Free State High School Class of 2006.

Did you know, 2006 FSHS grad, Spencer Lott, recreated the iconic puppets from Mr. Rogers neighborhood in immaculate detail for the new film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, starring Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers?

Spencer is a maker, writer and puppeteer based in Brooklyn. In addition to playing Samuel on Sesame Street, some of his puppetry credits include A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, America’s Got Talent and Scarecrow. Spencer has been the recipient of multiple Jim Henson Foundation Grants for his original theatrical work. Lott was the first recipient of the Jim Henson Foundation Puppetry Residency at the O’Neill Theater Center. He was named a “Hawk to Watch” by the University of Kansas Alumni Association. Currently, he is a resident artist at
HERE Arts, a member of the teaching artist ensemble at BAM and the New Victory Theater and is the Associate Artistic Director of Trusty Sidekick Theater Company (NYC).

We are beyond excited to announce that Spencer will be our 2020 featured guest speaker at our Annual Community Education Breakfast event! Mark your calendars - as you aren't going to want to miss this one!
