Greensboro, N.C. – Seventeen GCS schools will host drive-thru graduation recognition events this week, kicking off the annual graduation season.

The recognition events will follow an orderly procedure. Students and their families will drive onto campus following a set route. Students will be able to exit their cars, receive their diplomas and take a picture on the stage while Pomp and Circumstance is playing. They will then return to their cars and continue their routes.
