Largest graduating class in Imhotep Charter history leaves E. Germantown school [gallery]

When 119 Imhotep Institute Charter High School seniors became graduates on Friday at New Covenant Church, they represented the largest graduating class in the East Germantown school’s 15-year history.

As he did last year, history teacher Curtis Davis Djeli served as master of ceremonies.

In addressing the outgoing class, Principal Jeffrey Williams asked them to ponder their missions in life.

“Discovering your purpose is the easy part,” he said. “Accepting it is the hard part.”

From the perspective of athletics that NewsWorks covered this year, graduates Brandon Austin will play basketball at Providence College next year and David Williams will play football at the University of South Carolina.
