Twelve early graduates receive diplomas

Mon Oct 9, 2017

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

During the Longview ISD trustees meeting Monday, Oct. 9, graduates were recognized by Principal Kristi Means. Means praised the graduates for their achievement, challenging them to "not rest on these laurels, but continue to excell in life."

"This year's campus theme is 'legends making history,' and you graduates are indeed making history in your life," she said. "In your family you may be continuing a tradition of excellence, or you may be the first in your family to graduate — creating a new tradition in your family — but I charge you not to stop there. Be a trendsetter! Be steadfast, unwavering, and buoyant in seeking your dreams."
