Liberty Bay Announces its 2018 Scholarship Winners

Jane B. Cella 2018 Community Service Award Winner- Isabella Otoka, Hingham MA

The Jane B. Cella Community Service Scholarship is being awarded this year to Isabella Otoka of Hingham, MA for her exemplary dedication to her community, her passion in service, and for helping others. Isabella is an 18 year old student currently enrolled at Hingham High School in Hingham, MA.  

Isabella has been an active advocate within her community for a long time assisting and serving people suffering from mental illness. Through her own experience and struggles that she has successfully learned to cope and overcome she is able to provide guidance and education to her peers. Isabella has found it most rewarding to be able to replace a potentially devastating illness and transform it into an educational opportunity to share and prevent unnecessary tragedies throughout her community.

It is with her own experiences and acquired knowledge that she is able to embrace this call to action of support for her community suffering with mental illnesses. Isabella frequently participates in community support groups geared towards those with mental illnesses and also publicly speaks to her peers while sharing her personal story and experience spreading awareness and support. 

She has made volunteering and supporting others a lifelong passion and commitment. We applaud Isabella for being a strong young woman and an inspiration to others as she strives to continue to provide a safe and supportive role within her community. Isabella’s commitment to mental illness awareness and support will have a lasting impact on those around her. Her actions could very well save many people’s lives.
