Etched in Stone

Tess Allen

Tess Allen, a senior, is very excited for her second year of journalism. Allen is serving this year as the Art beat leader and is a huge contributor to the paper. She says that her favorite types of articles to write are either Op-Eds or Art articles.


While being very involved in the paper she is also involved in lots of things outside of school. Allen manages the boys basketball team in the fall which she says she really enjoys. She also want to be a social worker when she gets out of college. She isn’t sure where she wants to go exactly but she hopes to go to Kansas University, Trinity University, Sam Houston University, or Northern Arizona University.


Allen lives with her mom, dad, two sisters, as well as two dogs and a cat. Allen says that she really enjoys spending time with her sisters Lucy, a sophomore, and Ruby who is in 6th grade. Allen says that she enjoys lots of different kinds of music but her favorite artist is Billie Eilish.
