We Are Proud of Our Seniors!
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.
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.
