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

“Mrs. Peters,” writes Mark Morris 12th grader Jennifer Johnson.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Jennifer says, “Mrs. Peters has been one of the most influential people in my high school career. Not only does she keep me informed on post-secondary opportunities, she encourages me to prepare for them. She is always up to date on scholarships, college apps, requirements and general knowledge of what to do after high school. Not only that, but she has also worked tirelessly with myself and others to improve the general welfare of our school through the student resource center. Elaine is one of the more important people to know when it comes to being a senior and has influenced countless numbers of students. Many people, like myself, have become successful due to her help and dedication.”

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.
