Mr. Random is in his first month as activities director/assistant principal at Tonganoxie High School. Actually his name is Brandon Mellen, but he jokingly refers to himself as Mr. Random because he has a variety of interests and experiences. Mellen, who started July 1 in the Tonganoxie school district, played basketball at Emporia State, coached college basketball at Fort Scott Community College and Baker University, served as a “ball boy” on the sideline for Kansas football games in Lawrence and officiated high school basketball.
