Germantown High School's final graduation was a celebration, not a funeral

by Brian Hickey for NewsWorks
A newly minted Germantown High School graduate, Shyhiem Crump stood outside the New Covenant Church posing for pictures just before noon Wednesday. In his hands was a framed black-and-white graduation photograph of his late father Darnell.
Crump conceded that he was both a little nervous before the big day and bummed since he and his classmates represented the last graduating class in GHS' 99-year history.
