Brittany Allwine is EHS art student of the month
Freshman Brittany Allwine has been named the Estacada High School art student of the month for November.
Art teacher Janice Packard praised Allwines dedication, creativity and for volunteering to paint a team room sign for the Estacada High School Basketball Team.
