The Lamplighter Awards are designed to honor educators and the students whose lives the educators have touched, in addition to raising funds for the organization.

Established in 1994, the Longview ISD Foundation is a nonprofit organization that sponsors the annual Great Rewards for Great Ideas Grant Program, the Campus Initiative Grant Program, and the Lamplighter Awards Banquet. The foundation provides grants to teachers and campuses to help pay for items that the school district cannot provide for in its annual budget.

"Support the Longview ISD Foundation by purchasing a raffle ticket," said Ray. "The Longview ISD Foundation sincerely thanks Henry and Moore Jewelry, Ronnie Rice and NWS-National Wholesale Supply, Jeanie Folzenlogen, and Pizza King for donating this year’s raffle items and for their support of Longview ISD educators and students."
