Who would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Mr. Ruiz,” writes R.A. Long 12th grader Eastyn Reeves.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Eastyn says, “He has helped me learn more about anatomy and medical science careers. He is one of the many teachers at R.A. Long I have a strong relationship with and I know I can talk to him about anything.”

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our high school students and invited them to consider how Longview Public Schools staff have made a difference to them. Read about more of our stars and star polishers here.
