She is also involved in the school’s Interact Club, Marching Band and Power Nap Club. Her community and church activities include Relay for Life, where she is a committee chair and team captain. Hallowed went on her church’s pilgrimage to World Youth Day in Germany and she also traveled to Mexico for a mission project to build houses. She is a skier and runner in cross country and track. After she graduates, Hollowed plans to attend a four-year college and pursue study in the science field.

Ishizuka, a member of Mensa Of Western Washington and the National Honor Society, has been selected as a V.O.I.C.E. All Star for his outstanding service to the community and was named Top Boy by the Masonic Education Committee for the Class of 2006.
