The Oxford Area High School Student Council and Student Renaissance Committee recently held a breakfast to recognize the school’s Students of the Month for April. Each month, teachers in a specific department nominate a freshman, sophomore or junior student for this honor, with the final six selections made by the school administration.

Students of the Month are chosen based on criteria including demonstrating an effort and desire to learn; involvement in school and classroom activities; respect for all school policies and personnel; concern for the school community and friendliness and support for other students. The following students were recognized as Students of the Month for April:

Paris Lloyd, sophomore: Paris’s favorite subject is math. She babysits full-time and in her spare time enjoys sports and music. After graduation, Paris plans to attend West Chester University to study nursing.
