Graduating seniors from the Cienega High School Class of 2020 celebrated their achievement with family and friends at Tucson Dragway on Sunday, May 17. About 200 vehicles drove the length of the strip in cars, trucks, trailers, and even a boat, decorated with balloons, streamers, signs, flags and more. Graduates lined up before the drag strip and had their names written down on a note card, along with filling out paper work. When the ceremony started, graduates drove to the starting line, had their names read over the intercom and posed for a picture. Then the graduates proceeded to cheer, wave and laugh as they were driven down the strip in front of family and friends.
Seniors at Empire High School, Vail Academy and High School will have the same treatment tonight at Tucson Dragway. Pantano High School and Andrada Polytechnic High School are Tuesday night.
