Oxford Area High School student Christian McCartney was honored as an Oxford Rotary Club Senior of the Month at the club’s November meeting. A second November Senior of the Month, Cameo Powell, was unable to attend the meeting and will be honored by the club in December.
Christian, son of Wyvonnejenne and Dennis McCartney, moved with his family to Oxford from Fairview Park, Ohio and attended Bethany Christian School through sixth grade. He is a two-year member of National Honor Society and a founder and leader of the high school’s chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Christian is a three-year member of the varsity basketball team at shooting guard. For the past two summers he conducted a basketball camp at Oxford Church of the Nazarene, which also served as his senior project.
Christian appeared in last spring’s musical production of Seussical and will appear in this year’s musical, Once Upon a Mattress.
Christian is an instructor in the high school’s Child Care Preschool Lab and the recipient of a Presidential Scholarship from Elizabethtown University, where he will study early childhood education. After graduation, he plans to remain at Elizabethtown for an additional year to earn a master’s degree, and hopes to own and operate a preschool center.
