Mayor Mack's Scholarship

Mayor Mack provides a scholarship to local students who have shown an attitude of service to the Longview community. Graduating seniors from Longview, Pine Tree, Spring Hill and Hallsville High Schools who are residents of Longview are eligible to apply for a scholarship to college. One scholarship will be awarded per high school to students for furthering their education. These funds, which total $5,000, are provided by Mayor Andy Mack. Rather than receive an annual stipend for his service on City Council, the Mayor uses his stipend to invest in students' futures.
