Mayor Mack provides a scholarship to local students who have shown an attitude of service to the Longview community. Students in Longview, Pine Tree, Spring Hill and Hallsville High Schools are eligible to apply for a one-time $2,000 scholarship to college. One scholarship will be awarded per high school to students for furthering their education. These funds, which total $8,000, are coming out of the annual stipends for Mayor Andy Mack and Councilwoman Kristen Ishihara. Rather than take a annual stipend, the Mayor and Councilwoman Ishihara chose to use their stipends to invest in students' futures.
Recipients must be a resident of the City of Longview (within the city limits of Longview, TX) and be a graduating senior from either Longview, Pine Tree, Spring Hill, or Hallsville High School. Interested students must complete and return the scholarship application by Friday, March 29, 2019.
