Nearly three dozen Denton County and other local area high school commencement ceremonies have begun at Texas Motor Speedway as part of a program to ensure great high school graduation memories for nearly 14,000 students whose senior year was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Graduates will accept their diplomas as they cross the start/finish line of the 1.5-mile racing surface. The diploma presentations are “hands-free” and respect the social distancing guidelines outlined by Denton County Health Services.
Texas Motor Speedway is also showing each commencement ceremony on “Big Hoss,” the world’s largest HDTV screen, for one vehicle full of family and friends per graduate to share in the very special occasion.
