Circuit of The Americas Safely Welcomes Class of 2020 for Graduation Parade on May 30

On Saturday, May 30 starting at 11 a.m., Circuit of The Americas (COTA) will host a graduation celebration for Del Valle High School’s Class of 2020. The preeminent motorsports, music, and entertainment facility will welcome 650 graduates in anywhere from 300-500 vehicles for a social distancing parade, in Lot A at COTA.

“We’re honored to be able to do something nice for the students, as many of them have worked here, and we’re very proud of them” commented COTA Founder and Chairman, Bobby Epstein.

In addition to graduation music being played throughout the facility, seniors and their loved ones are encouraged to decorate their cars in honor of the graduating class. During the event, students will

drive down the middle of the iconic Main Grandstand parking lot with friends and family parked on either side cheering on the soon to be alumnus. The parade will be led by Valedictorian, Stephanie Cardenas and Salutatorian, Cecilia Corona Rodriguez, followed by Superintendent, Dr. Annette Tielle, DVHS Principal, Dr. Joseph Welch, and ECHS Principal Jenise Wright.

“Over the years, we developed a great relationship with our Del Valle neighbors at COTA. This includes providing interview and job opportunities for our students and visits and soccer practices with Austin Bold FC members” said Del Valle High School Principal, Dr Joseph Welch. “We are thrilled that they reached out to host our senior parade in a safe and contained environment. This opportunity provides our students and families an experience to reward them for what many have lost during the pandemic. Although the seniors will be missing out on traditional senior year experiences, our friends at COTA are providing them with new and unique memories.”

The students will also be recognized by name at a virtual ceremony hosted by the school on June 6. For more information on Circuit of The Americas visit or on social media on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
