Oxford Area High School students Samantha Hubley and Madeline Martin were honored as Oxford Rotary Club Seniors of the Month for April.

Samantha, daughter of Chris and Dave Hubley, is a member of the Helping Hands Community Service Club and was elected club president for her senior year. For the past three years she has chaired the club’s committee for its annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service activities. As a junior and senior she was committee chair for the club’s annual Earth Day cleanup and planting project in Downtown Oxford, working with Oxford Mainstreet, Inc. to coordinate the event.

As Helping Hands president, Samantha has helped coordinate the club’s participation in the Chester County CROP Walk and the Oxford Mainstreet 5K Run and Fall Festival. She has also volunteered at the annual Student Council Holiday Festival and with the high school’s team in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.

Since her sophomore year Samantha has participated in the lacrosse club and was a member of the football cheerleading squad. She is also a member of National Honor Society and Future Business Leaders of America.

After graduation, Samantha will attend Penn State University’s Altoona campus and is interested in studying for a career in marketing or elementary education.

Madeline, daughter of Francine Joyce-Martin, played on the field hockey team and is a member of National Honor Society, the French Honor Society and the marching band. 

As a member of the high school’s 4-H chapter, Madeline is involved in numerous 4-H clubs and activities in Chester County through the Penn State Extension. She has participated in county 4-H clubs for livestock, robotics and textiles, among others. 

Madeline is particularly involved with the 4-H migrant education program, which works with young people from low-income families in southern Chester County. Each summer she and other volunteers spend four days a week working with children and young adults in the Hispanic community, teaching crafts and the basics of agriculture and composting.  

At the conclusion of each summer’s program, the projects created by the participants are displayed as part of a county-wide 4-H fair held in August, with ribbons presented for the top projects. In addition to her county activities, Madeline has attended numerous state and national 4-H events focusing on citizenship, leadership skills and community involvement.

After graduation, Madeline will attend Albright College to study medicine and is interested in a possible career as a dermatologist.
