Michigan Center To Hold High School Graduation At Michigan International SpeedwayShare
Michigan Center High School and Michigan International Speedway have come together to celebrate the accomplishments and years of hard work for graduating seniors.
On Saturday, June 13 at 7 p.m., while being led by the pace car, the graduates - inside their vehicles - will take to the two-mile track. Graduates will hear their names aloud on the track’s public address system as they cross the start/finish line.
“During these unprecedented times with large gatherings such as traditional high school graduations in doubt, our facility provides the ability to still hold an event like this in a safe environment,” said Michigan International Speedway President Rick Brenner. “We are honored to host these graduates and their families for this special occasion.”
“Our Michigan Center Seniors have endured many challenges the last few months. To be able to recognize them on a national stage at Michigan International Speedway is an incredible opportunity and a special memory that they will cherish for years to come,” said Michigan Center High School Principal Lisa Falasco. “Thank you, MIS and Congratulations MCHS Class of 2020.”
In accordance with CDC and public health agency standards and protocols, the ceremonies will be closed to the public, and all in attendance will remain in their vehicles throughout the duration of the event.
A donation option will be available for those in attendance. Patrons will have the opportunity to donate $10 to help a student from the surrounding community attend the MIS STEM event in 2021. The event includes demonstrations and curriculum surrounding the aerodynamics involved in racing and a ticket to attend a race at MIS.
