Five Longview students showed their commitment to excellence on Monday, Aug. 12th, as they received their diplomas, graduating from Longview Early Graduation High School.

During the Longview ISD trustees regular meeting Monday, Aug. 12th, the graduates were recognized by Principal Kristi Means. Means praised the graduates for their achievement, quoting the poem “Invictus,” and inspiring her students to be the "captains" of their souls.

"Our graduates tonight are the epitome of the words: tenacious and resilience," she said. "Life happens and some things are out of our control, but you grabbed hold and you didn’t let anything stand in your way of achieving it."
