The City of Longview is now accepting applications for Mayor Andy Mack’s scholarship. Graduating seniors from Longview, Pine Tree, Spring Hill, and Hallsville High Schools who are residents of Longview are eligible to apply for this one-time, $2,000 scholarship to college.

Each year, Mayor Mack provides a scholarship to local students who have shown an attitude of service to the Longview community. One scholarship is awarded per high school to students for furthering their education. These funds, which total $8,000, are provided by Mayor Andy Mack and Councilwoman Kristen Ishihara, who use their annual council stipends to invest in students’ futures.

“I am always amazed by the students who apply for the scholarship,” Mack said. “They give me an incredible hope for our city’s future, and I am so proud that Kristen and I can play a part in their future success.”

The completed application and one-page essay may be submitted online, mailed, or delivered to City Hall. The essay prompt for 2021 is:
