Hollowed, Ishizuka are students of the month

Maddy Hollowed, daughter of John and Anne Hollowed, and Andrew Ishizuka, son of Terri Adams and Paul Ishizuka, were recently honored by Rotary International as “Islanders of the Month.” The Mercer Island High School students were selected for the month of October.

Hollowed is a National Representative for the American Cancer Society, a BRIDGES leader and president of the Kids Corps Tutoring Club at Mercer Island High School. 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. He has volunteered for Big Brothers/Big Sisters as a mentor for `at risk’ youth and for Volunteer Outreach In Communities Everywhere. At Mercer Island High School, Ishizuka is a BRIDGES Leader of Leaders and has been in the Marching Band and Wind Ensemble for all of his four years.
