You May Know Mr. Mellon…

You may know Mr. Mellon for his humorous and entertaining personality or his funny stories in class, but there’s a lot more to him than you see. Mr. Mellon started teaching at Apopka High School during the 2005/2006 school year and has built many friendships through teaching and our school’s SGA. This Baltimore-raised teacher has had a lot of amazing impact on Apopka’s students, and he’s not stopping there. This year he gets to see his son, Benjamin Mellon, walk across the stage and say goodbye to high school!
