Lincoln Charter School's graduation Friday night (May 29th) was a 'race to the finish line.'
Actually, there was no racing involved, but the 142 graduating seniors did cross the finish line to get their diplomas at Charlotte Motor Speedway. While some senior classes may feel they missed out because the coronavirus pandemic kept them from their traditional graduation at the end of the school year, Lincoln Charter grads got a graduation that was something they'll talk about for years to come.
