Gonzalez, Mendenhall earn 'Voice' Scholarships

Fri May 8, 2020

Congratulations to Longview High seniors Jesse Gonzalez and Emily Mendenhall for being selected as The Longview Voice Scholarship winners for 2020! 

Jesse and Emily were selected for their contributions to the Voice as well as their superlative level of achievement both inside and outside the classroom. These exceptional students will each receive a $1,000 scholarship. They are just a few of the hundreds of LHS seniors earning scholarships in the Class of 2020. 

"Each of these young people did a tremendous job of communicating how Longview ISD has inspired them as well as prepared them to take the next step in their lives," said Matthew Prosser, Communications Specialist and managing editor of The Longview Voice. "Now in our fifth year of this program, the district has given more than $10,000 in scholarships to Lobo graduates." 

The Longview Voice is a district-wide newspaper that covers student, staff, and local community news. The paper is produced by the LISD Community Relations department in partnership with the Thrifty Nickel, as well as campus staff and volunteers.

“We encourage all our students to contribute articles and photography to The Longview Voice,” said Superintendent Dr. James Wilcox. “That’s why it’s called ‘the Voice,’ because it is a voice for our entire Longview ISD community. We want our students to feel a sense of ownership toward this newspaper.”

Each year the Community Relations department selects a Longview High School senior student who contributes work to The Longview Voice for a scholarship to the school of their choice.

Past Winners include Estrella Gonzales, Keyarro Hollins, Uwa Ihionkhan, Yosef Ibitayo (Class of 2016); Gaylon Wiley (Class of 2017); German Zelaya, Jose Velazquez, Michael Vera (Class of 2018), Alyssa Shobert, Brady Miller, and Payton Schaap (Class of 2019), and now Jesse Gonzalez and Emily Mendenhall in the Class of 2020.

Are you a student who is interested in being considered for next year's scholarship? All you have to do is submit an article for publication in any edition of The Longview Voice newspaper and fill out a scholarship application.
