Longview School District


Longview, WA, USA

Longview Public Schools help students launch successfully into college and career. We’d like to introduce a number of our (fairly recent) graduates and highlight their accomplishments and career trajectories. Here is a notable Rising Star:

  • CVG and Northlake elementaries
  • Cascade Middle School
  • Mark Morris High School Class of 2013
  • BS Physics and Math – Harvey Mudd 2017; Magna Cum Laude
  • PhD – UC Berkley – Theoretical Physics (in process)

“While I was at Mark Morris, my most useful experiences were my interactions with Mr. Powell. He helped me to choose my major/career and he spent a lot of time with me teaching me physics. I may not be here at Berkeley doing physics if it weren’t for him.

My positive experiences weren’t just limited to physics and mathematics. I also had good experiences with my Spanish courses, the knowledge bowl team, the robotics team and the chamber orchestra. Dr. (Lanette) Shepherd was very encouraging and she helped direct me to many excellent experiences at state level competitions.”
