North Ridgeville Resident Among Students Honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Jada Frye of North Ridgeville was one of 10 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. Sixty-six 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.
Frye, who received third-team honors, is working toward an Associate of Arts degree at Tri-C and expects to graduate in May. She plans to begin taking classes at Cleveland State University in the fall.
Her goal is to open a business that meshes arts and wellness programs, creating a space where people can improve their minds and bodies.
Frye serves as a student ambassador at Tri-C’s Westshore Campus in Westlake. She is also president of the Gaming Club and active in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter on campus. Frye is in the College’s Honors Program, too.
She joined the following Tri-C students — designated by campus — as All-Ohio:
- Eastern Campus: Dylan Doyle of Shaker Heights (third team), Rebecca Groth of University Heights (second team) and Ray Watson of Mentor (first team and New Century Workforce Scholar)
- Metropolitan Campus: Kimberly Armbruster of Cleveland (first team) and Stephen Twum Barimah of Cleveland (second team)
- Western Campus: Alice Legg of Fairview Park (first team) and Amanda Lowe of Mayfield Heights (third team)
- Westshore Campus: Ameera Muntaser of Olmsted Township (third team) and Petru Poenaru of Lakewood (third 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 26 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.
