Students scheduled to graduate this May from Faith Lutheran High School will have a unique commencement ceremony this year. The Class of 2020 Crusaders will receive their diploma in their cars while making a lap around Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) on May 22, at 6:30 p.m.
Students will receive their diploma as they drive across the start-finish line of the 1.5-mile superspeedway. They will continue around the speedway for an approximate one-mile victory lap before exiting the speedway. The students and their families will be able to hear the commencement address as well as remarks from the valedictorian on their car radios via the speedway's low-power FM transmitter.
