A national honor which recognizes outstanding achievement in schools, has nominated an East Texas elementary school for a prestigious award. Longview's Hudson Pep Elementary is among 26 Texas schools that has been selected by the United States Department of Education as candidates for the elite Blue Ribbon program. The program acknowledges schools that consistently have high student achievement and dramatic academic gains. Blue Ribbon recipients will be announced in a special ceremony in the fall.
