Today Was Germantown High’s Last Graduation

CBS 3 reports on the last graduation at Germantown High — 120 seniors ending their school careers on the same day the school ends its own.

While proud families of the graduates cheered, Vera Peeples-Primus, the head of the alumni association, fought back tears.

“I’m sort of at a loss for words,” she said today.  “It’s years’ worth ofhard work.  And everyone talks about the negative and nobody talks about the positive.  And this particular class worked hard.”

Among the school’s famous alumni? Kevin Eubanks, the former Tonight Show bandleader, and comedian Bill Cosby.
