Burtie Smith-Griffin’s painting of a Great Blue Heron captured both the Best-in-Show and People’s Choice honors in the NW La. District Senior Olympics Craft Fair May 4.
She’s the same Burtie Smith-Griffin who has run her way to scads of medals in the district, state and national track and field meets. She will make her way to Houston for her seventh National Senior Games this summer where she is qualified in the 100 and 200 meter events.
