It may not have had the usual "pomp and circumstance" of the end-of-year graduation ceremony, but the diplomas presented to these Longview Early Graduation High School students are just as special.

During the Longview ISD trustees meeting Monday, Nov. 11th, six graduates were recognized by Principal Kristi Means. Means praised the graduates for their achievement, challenging them to "live by your own slogan."

"What will make you different? What separates you from the rest?" she asked. "My advice to you is to, yes, follow your dreams, but also be persistent. To quote the famous Nike slogan: 'Just do it!'"
