Maddy, a student at Estacada Middle School, was selected as a member of the 2019 Class of Amazing Kids by the Pamplin Media Group. Maddy and 27 other kids from throughout Northwest Oregon and the central part of the state were honored Monday during an event held at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. The prestigious Amazing Kids program strives to reward children who work hard to make a difference in their communities. Many of the honorees have overcome their own challenges. Maddy recently collected 800 pounds of pet food for the Estacada Area Food Bank. She has also raised funds for the World Wildlife Foundation. Watch for the Amazing Kids magazine that publishes Thursday with the Estacada News. (Maddy's story is sponsored by Weston Kia Dealerships.)
