2016 Bay Student of the Year

Isra Siddiq of North Attleboro, Mass.

Save The Bay's 2016 Bay Student of the Year, Isra Siddiq
2016’s Bay Student of the Year, Isra Siddiq, volunteered as a Save The Bay Summer Camp Counselor in Training three years in a row.

Isra Siddiq is a rising senior at North Attleboro High School. She has volunteered for the past two summers as a Save The Bay Summer Camp Counselor in Training, and returns again this July.

As a counselor in training, Siddiq assists camp staff with leading games, activities and stories with Junior BayCamp groups. So inspirational were these experiences for her, that Siddiq attended Save The Bay’s first Summer High School Academy last year to explore marine science career options, and is now taking environmental science classes at school to continue studying the Bay and its watershed.

“I’ve enjoyed volunteering at Save The Bay over the summers. I love being part of the educational experience for the campers. I’m very happy to have received this award,” Siddiq said.
