    The Oxford Rotary Club honored three Oxford Area High School students as its Seniors of the Month for November and December at its December 18 meeting.

    Cameo Powell was honored as the club’s second Senior of the Month for November after she was unable to attend the club’s November meeting when Christian McCartney was honored as Senior of the Month. Joshua Arnold and Leah Humphrey were honored as Seniors of the Month for December.

    Cameo, daughter of Kerry and Larry Powell, is a two-year member of National Honor Society, National English Honor Society and the LEOs Club, where she serves as liaison to the Oxford Lions Club, its sponsoring organization. She has sung with the high school’s Bella Voce female ensemble for two years and appeared in last year’s spring musical production of Seussical.

    Cameo was a four-year member of the volleyball team and will be starting her fourth season on the softball team, playing third base, catcher and outfield.

    Cameo is extensively involved in activities at her church, serving on two mission trips in the United States and one trip abroad. For the past four years she has been the youth representative on her church district’s leadership council, for the past two summers has been a group leader for her church’s community basketball camp and is also a Vacation Bible School instructor.

    Joshua, son of Antje and Gary Arnold, is a two-year member of the National English Honor Society and the Science National Honor Society, and a three-year member of the high school’s team in the Chester County Academic Competition.

    Joshua told the club members that he is very interested in the sciences and after graduation hopes to pursue a career in the field of research. In college he plans to major in chemistry and physics with a possible minor in meteorology.

    Joshua enjoys playing music in his free time and is self-taught on guitar and bass guitar. He noted that he is a dual citizen of Germany, where his mother was born, and the United States, as his father grew up in Oxford and graduated from Oxford Area High School.

    Leah, daughter of Denise and Tim Humphrey, is a two-year member of National Honor Society and the Science National Honor Society, where she is vice-president after serving as secretary in her junior year, and is chair of the tutoring committee. She is a three-year member of the Spanish National Honor Society and a four-year member of the Helping Hands Community Service Club.

    Leah trains in a variety of styles of dance at KMC Dance in Kennett Square, where she also teaches classes to Voyager-level students. She also takes guitar lessons at the Oxford Arts Alliance.

    After graduation Leah plans to attend college to study neuroscience or psychology.
