Governor Visits Longview School

East Texas students got the message today from Governor Rick Perry, "Education is a priority". Perry today talked to students at Longview High School about a new $130-million initiative to boost Texas graduation rates.

About two-dozen randomly selected students, along with teachers, were allowed to hear the governor outline the program. Many teachers welcomed news of the initiative.

The first grants will be dealt out to 70 schools in February.
