McMillans:   A Perfect  Match

 by Carolyn Davis Beal

       Noel McMillan and Deborah Brown met in algebra class at Lincoln.  He was a senior and she  a junior.  They dated for four years………before saying those two little words, “I do”.

Deborah says, "During our days at Lincoln, Noel was a thorn in my side.  In the beginning of his pursuing me, I was not interested in him at all." 

     Deborah continues, "But after interacting with him and becoming more mature, I got to know him better  and discovered that he was a very genuine person." 

Proud Moment at Dillard University

 On June 12 the McMillans  will celebrate 31 years of marriage.  “What a testimony!”  Their love produced a son, Chadwick (Chad) Noel who is now 25 .   Holding  a Bachelor's degree from  Dillard University  and an MBA  from the University of Phoenix, Chad currently teaches  business education at Samuel High School. Ironically, he replaced  Rita  Bacon Hughes following her passing. Chad is not married yet.  Deborah and Noel, therefore,  have no grandchildren.   But  they are very much looking forward to becoming grandparents.  

    For 38 years the McMillans have been members of the Griggs Chapel Baptist Church in South Dallas.

     Noel teaches biology  at South Oak Cliff High School. Deborah works as an administrative assistant at Thompson & Knight Law Firm. 

  Noel and Deborah offer the following  advice for marital success:


McMillans in 9th Year of Marriage

  •  Be God-fearing
  •  Have open communication
  •  Be honest with each other.
  •  Take your marriage vows very seriously

Well said!  The McMillans is one  of many couples  who trace their  romance back to  Lincoln.  That flame is still burning to this day.  We extend our congratulations  and  warmest wishes to Noel and Deborah for accomplishing success  in their marriage and for doing a remarkable job in raising a wonderful son.
