Sivewright is a familiar face in the Sultan community, well known for her extensive community involvement, volunteerism, and as a local artist. Thanks to her efforts, Sultan’s Main Street is lined with American flags on holidays and during other special events. Additionally, the City’s fire hydrants along Main Street and the parade route feature red, white, and blue paint jobs, resulting from a project that combined her artistic skills with community service.

Most recently Sivewright steer-headed an artistic endeavor that crosses the USA. The Sultan Freedom Rock located in Traveler’s Park, honors local veteran Sam Wold and Cle Elum born astronaut Dick Scobee. Not only meant to enhance tourism, the piece will also help preserve the history and heritage of the City.
