Davie County High School principal, Doyle Nicholson, announced yesterday that Davie County High School will hold a drive-in graduation ceremony with a drive-through diploma pick up.

Senior students were asked to complete a survey with graduation ceremony options that aligned with celebrations that could lawfully be held at this time.  They were also offered an option to postpone the ceremony to a later date. The majority chose to keep the current graduation date of June 13 and enjoy the graduation ceremony from their cars in the school parking lot, with everyone remaining in their vehicles.  With one car per graduate, graduates and their families will proceed to the car line to receive their diplomas.

While this will be the day’s events on June 13, plans are in the works for a special event on campus prior to graduation.

Wearing their cap and gown, seniors will be given the opportunity to come through the car line, exit the vehicle at the sidewalk, and walk across a stage to receive their diploma covers. This optional event will also include a photo opportunity. Family members will be able to drive by the stage and take pictures/video from their car as their senior walks across the stage to receive their diploma cover.

“Davie County Schools felt it was imperative to hear from all seniors on how they wanted to be celebrated during this milestone time in their lives,” said Superintendent Jeff Wallace. “While graduations will look different, the hope is to provide a meaningful and memorable celebration for the Class of 2020 and their families.”
