Important Dates for Seniors!

Longview High School will hold its annual Senior Scholarship Night on Tuesday, May 14, at 6:30 PM in the Mickey Melton Center's auditorium.  All seniors will be notified if they are included in evening's presentation.

We Are Proud of Our Seniors!

Andrew O’Connor, a Longview High School senior, has been named  a National Merit Scholarship Program semifinalist. He is among 16,000 students nationwide – less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors – to receive the honor, and is competing for a share of more than $32 million in college scholarships.

The field of semifinalists was narrowed from about 1.5 million high school juniors, who entered the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

O’Connor is an International Baccalaureate student, National Honor Society member and NASA High School Aerospace Scholar. His extracurricular activities are numerous, including the Technology Student Association, in which he serves as chapter president and has been on regional, state and national winning teams; Longview High School’s 2011-12 District Champion Academic UIL team; and the Texas Bank & Trust Student Board of Directors, on which he serves as vice chair. O’Connor is also an Eagle Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America.

He is the son of Tim and Rose O’Connor.

O’Connor plans to pursue a degree in nuclear engineering at either Texas A&M University or the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

“I am thrilled by the number of opportunities that being a National Merit Semifinalist offers me,” he said.

The field of 16,000 semifinalists will be narrowed in February, with scholarship awards announced in the spring.


From November  through May, Longview High School students competed for over 150 scholarships.  For some of these individual scholarships, Longview High School students submitted as many as sixty applications. Their efforts were rewarded as these students have earned $2,240,427.00.  The Class of 2012 exceeded the Class of 2011's scholarship total by $657,586.00.

 Longview High School appreciates the many local businesses, clubs, organizations, churches, sororities, and fraternities that raise money so that these deserving students can receive financial assistance for college, and it appreciates the colleges, universities, and the military that saw the potential in the students and offered them generous academic, athletic and military scholarships. 

IMPORTANT NEWS YOU CAN USE

Seniors, Texas state law now requires that you receive a bacterial meningitis shot before entering college.  Talk to your doctor about this important shot.

Students, if you need a transcript, you may call and request one through Mrs. Watson, the LHS receptionist, at 903-663-1301.  Mrs. Watson will tell you when you can pick up your transcript.  If you have requested several transcripts, there will be a $2.00 charge per transcript.  Students at LHS may sign up for a transcript with Mrs. Fugler, the registrar.  Sign the list on her door.

Hispanic students searching for scholarships should check out www.LatinoCollegeDollars.org.  At this website you can find information about scholarships and download the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, in both English and Spanish.
