Greater Millville Chamber of Commerce Selects Outstanding Citizen for November

MILLVILLE - The Greater Millville Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) selected the “Outstanding Citizen” for November 2015.
Executive Director of Help & Hope Ministries Charles “Chuck” Brett was selected as this month’s recipient due to his commitment to the greater good of the community. Brett, a graduate of Williamstown High School and Rowan University, has served in several leadership positions on many county and education boards throughout the years. During 1974 to 2003, Brett was employed by the Millville Board of Education, working in several capacities, such as Director of Grants and Continuing Education, Principal of the Alternative High School, Guidance Counselor, and Job Placement Coordinator.
Additionally, Brett worked for Rowan University for nine years and taught at Clearview Regional High School for four years. Brett is also a member and past president of the Millville Kiwanis club, a member of the Cumberland County College Foundation Board, and a member of the Session of First Presbyterian Church. Brett’s wife Judi is a retired Millville teacher and the two of them have six children and six grandchildren together.
Chuck has a big heart and cares about people,” said John Nurnberger, President of the Board of Help & Hope Ministries and minister of the First Presbyterian Church. “I’ve seen that caring in the different work he’s done such as advising students at Rowan, and I see his caring happen in two ways at Help & Hope.  He cares about the volunteers and does things to recognize their efforts, and he cares about the people in the community who are in need of food.”
