    Oxford Area High School students Reagan Dolinger and Matthew Towey were recently honored as Oxford Rotary Club Seniors of the Month for April.

    Reagan, daughter of Lauren and Jason Dolinger, is a member of National Honor Society, National English Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society. She has played field hockey since age seven and for the past three years was a member of the varsity team

    Regan also coaches and referees with the Oxford Youth Field Hockey League, and credits this volunteer work with helping her develop mentoring skills and foster a love of the game among younger players.

    Reagan enjoys surfing and this summer will work for a second year at the K-Coast Surf Shop in Ocean City, Maryland. She also enjoys playing guitar, exploring the outdoors and reading, and is a particularly gifted writer.

    This fall Reagan will enroll in the honors program at the University of Delaware to major in linguistics. However, she will spend the first semester of her freshman year studying at the University of Auckland in New Zealand as part of the university’s World Scholars program.

    Reagan’s goal is to become fluent in critical languages such as Mandarin, Japanese and Russian in anticipation of a career as an interpreter, translator and travel writer.

    Matthew, son of Patricia and Scott Towey, is a member of National Honor Society, the STEM Club, Helping Hands community service club and the ping-pong club. He volunteers as an umpire and assistant coach with Oxford Little League, and organized and ran a youth baseball clinic as his graduation project.

    Having relocated with his family from northern New Jersey to Oxford, Matthew remains a dedicated fan of the New York Mets, New York Giants, New Jersey Devils and Brooklyn Nets.

    Matthew will soon complete his fourth year of study in the high school’s Project Lead the Way STEM curriculum. This fall he will attend West Virginia University to study computer engineering.
