Cleveland resident one of eight students honored from Cuyahoga Community College
CLEVELAND — Angela Garcia of Cleveland was one of eight students from Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) named to the All-Ohio Community College Academic Team, which comprises top students at the state’s two-year schools.
The All-Ohio Academic Team recognizes student excellence in academics, leadership and community service. Fifty-five students from across the state were selected for this year’s team on the basis of their outstanding records.
Tri-C had more students named All-Ohio than any other school.
Garcia, who received third-team honors, is studying social work at Tri-C and expects to earn her associate degree in May. She plans to transfer to the University of Akron in the fall to pursue a bachelor’s degree and certification in social work.
Her ultimate goal is to earn a master’s degree in public policy and administration.
She is involved with Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland and is a member of the Hispanic Council’s Student Excellence Program and the Black American Council’s Minority Women’s Leadership Initiative.
Garcia is also a charter member of the Philosophy Club and a peer tutor with TRiO Student Support Services, a federally funded program that assists first-generation students.
She joined the following Tri-C students — designated by campus — as All-Ohio:
· Eastern Campus: Sharmayne Schaffer of Garfield Heights (first team) and Heather Hamilton of Willoughby Hills (second team)
· Metropolitan Campus: Vencott Palmer of Strongsville (second team)
· Western Campus: Enzo Zaccardelli of Parma (first team) and Zachary Toth of Parma (third team)
· Westshore Campus: Sela Cunningham of Fairview Park (second team) and Rachael Hockenberry of Olmsted Township (second team)
First-team honorees will receive $1,000 scholarships, while second-team members get $500 scholarships and third-team members $250. A recognition program for team members will be held in Columbus on April 21 during Community College Month.
The All-Ohio Academic Team program is supported by the Ohio Association of Community Colleges, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and Honda of America Mfg., Inc.
