Cameron Keller has involved himself in dozens of activities throughout his time at Liberty Christian school, but in this his senior year, he has narrowed his focus.
The Argyle teen is ranked fifth in his graduating class with a 4.36 grade-point-average and said he believes that all the extracurricular activities of which he has been a part enriched his life in different ways.
“I generally only participate in activities that interest me, so it’s not easy to pick a favorite,” Keller said. “But I am very excited to see what the National Honor Society (NHS) at Liberty will accomplish this year. We have a great combination of council members that care enough to form ideas for bettering the school; and, teacher sponsors that want to empower those ideas.”
Keller, 17, has participated in chorale, theater, student government and several sports throughout his time at LCS, but said that, in addition to NHS this school year, he is going to focus his efforts on the student council and wrestling.
“I try to remain as involved as my time allows, because it helps me to form relationships with people I would not normally spend time,” Keller said. “I just enjoy giving back to a school that has given so much to me over the past twelve years.”
Keller said he likes to spend his free time in a variety of ways.
“I rarely spend [social] time alone, as I do most of my studying alone,” Keller said. “I enjoy fishing and rock climbing with friends, cooking (and eating) with whoever is willing and critiquing terrible movies with my mom.”
Keller said he has not yet decided what he wants to do for a career path, but said his faith will certainly allow him to enjoy the journey.
“I have yet to pinpoint a career that I feel will sufficiently couple my passion for both science and people, but I plan to study Chemical Engineering in college and see where the Lord takes me from there,” Keller said.
