CVCC Holding Graduation Drive-through Event

LYNCHBURG, VA – The Central Virginia Community College (CVCC) graduation committee has announced the addition of a parade drive-through event to their upcoming virtual graduation ceremonies for both the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021.

On the evening of Wednesday, May 12, CVCC faculty, staff, administrators, and invited alumni will welcome both the Classes of 2020 and 2021 to campus for a combined drive-through celebration from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

CVCC College Registrar Karen Alexander said, "We are extremely proud of our graduates and we invite you to complete a ‘victory lap’ around campus. Whether you are a part of the Class of 2020 or 2021, we look forward to seeing you and sharing this special time with you.”

Graduate vehicles should enter CVCC parking lot #1 at the marked entrances from CVCC Campus Drive and slowly circle around in front of the Appomattox Building where they will be cheered on by CVCC President John Capps as well as faculty, staff, administrators, and invited alumni.  

Upon completing the marked parade route, graduates will exit back onto CVCC Campus Drive and drive toward Wards Ferry Road.  Graduates are encouraged to show their school spirit by wearing CVCC attire or graduation regalia.  Traffic flow will be maintained by the CVCC Campus Police.

Graduates can arrive anytime between 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. to proceed through the parade route.  There is no limit on the number of guests or cars that may proceed through the parade with each graduate, but they must remain in their vehicles and continue through the parade route with no stopping or parking on campus.  

No graduation items will be distributed during this event (e.g., diplomas, diploma covers, etc.).  The drive-through event is meant to be a celebratory parade and an opportunity for CVCC faculty and staff to wish CVCC graduates well.  Invitations and information will be sent to all graduates and graduation candidates via email and text with more drive-through event details.
