Twelve East Texas Women Are Honored As Stars Over Longview

They're hard working women who devote their time and talents to serving East Texas.

Today, 12 of Longview's brightest stars were honored at the "Star Over Longview" awards luncheon. Each year the community nominates women who rise to the occasion when it comes to achievement. T

his is the 8th year for the event, put on by Longview Regional Medical Center. One of this year's star tells KLTV, she has a motto that she lives by, which makes her willingness to serve so easy.

"Dream it, plan it,  and do it is my motto. It's short and simple and having taught school and having worked for Longview ISD Foundation that's pretty much what I've always done. Dream what you're going to do, plan how you're going to do it and don't talk about it, go do it," said Kay Ray an Stars Over Longview award recipient.
