The Christian Brothers at Mullen
Brother Charles Miller, F.S.C.
Brother Charles Miller graduated from the College of Santa Fe in 1965 and has obtained a Master's degree in Library Science in 1967 from East Texas State University (now Texas A & M at Commerce, Texas). Brother Charles served as a teacher/librarian at Cathedral High School in Lafayette, Louisiana for two years before being transferred to De La Salle High School in New Orleans. There he served as the audio visual librarian for the next eleven years. In 1978, Brother Charles was transferred to Denver and Mullen High School as head librarian. With the growth of Mullen from an approximate student population of 400 to over 1,000 students the administration decided that a larger library facility was a necessity and Brother Charles assisted with the design of a new library (Sferra Library) of almost 10,000 sq. feet. The planning took about a year and then another year to build the final plans. Bro. Charles has been the librarian in the new library for 12 years, for a total of 34 years at Mullen High School.
Brother Melvin J. Pelton, Mullen Graduate 1956
-"All my teachers (except my bookkeeping prof.) were Christian Brothers and all wore the traditional Black Robe. I loved
Mullen and the Christian Brothers so much that I applied to become a Christian Brother and entered the postulancy program in Lafayette LA. September 10, 1958. I have taught in every school on the NOSF (New Orleans - Santa Fe District)
except Opalousas, the College of Santa Fe and Mullen High. I am overwhelmed with joy to have been sent back to Mullen High to complete my senior years as of July 26, 2011... I have been active in Skip Zickmann's garden, the Masses, the Thursday Parents' Rosary, and both the class-level retreats and the KAIROS retreats held at Ponderosa Pines. I have taught in Central America for two years and am still very active in the Fort Logan Catholic Church, Holy Name, my elementary parish of Saint Louis Church and my high school parish of All Souls Church. I have always enjoyed being a Christian Brother and wish to die as one here at Mullen High.
Thank you and God Bless you."
