Signing Day: Top Students Selected for Tri-C Honors Program Fellowships
August 07, 2017
Program provides scholarships that cover tuition, fees and books
Twenty-four top high school graduates have been selected for a Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) Honors Program Fellowship, which offers scholarships to cover tuition, fees and books as they work toward an associate degree.
The College’s fourth fellowship class features students with at least a 3.5 GPA and outstanding ACT/SAT scores. By entering the scholarship program, they commit to being full-time students and earning a degree from Tri-C within two years.
The students signed commitment letters with the College during an Aug. 2 ceremony at Tri-C’s Jerry Sue Thornton Center in Cleveland. Each scholarship — funded by the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation — is valued at up to $4,250 per academic year.
“These gifted students chose Tri-C to begin their college experience,” said Herbert Mausser, assistant dean of Honors and Experiential Learning Programs. “Given their track record of high achievement, I look forward to seeing them cross the stage at commencement in May 2019.”
The following students received honors fellowships to pursue academic success at Cuyahoga Community College: Gregory Bilinovich of North Royalton; Adrien Curtis of Olmsted Falls; Daniel Dusek of Middleburg Heights; Deanna Drockton of Medina; Brittany Dye of Strongsville; Ashley Emich of Copley; Cassidy Fudale of Olmsted Falls; Ryan Gioia of Brecksville; Courtni Gordon of Bedford Heights; Landon Hunt of Waterford, Michigan; Erin Kohler of Olmsted Township; Youjin Lee of Parma; Anne Mackin of Fairview Park; Christina Mamrak of Valley City; Kathleen Nieves of Brooklyn; Katherine Pafford of North Royalton; Ian Phillips of Parma; Heather Reber of North Olmsted; Brendan Shahrokh of Medina; Emilee Skutt of Westlake; Matthew Stafford of North Royalton; Catherine Strom of North Olmsted; Paige Tulcewicz of Brook Park; and Shalynn Zauner of Fairview Park.
The honors fellowship places special emphasis on academic planning, mentoring and portfolio building to reflect student work. Smaller honors class sizes also ensure specialized attention for students.
The program is designed to support eventual transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor’s and other advanced degrees. Previous Honors Program Fellows amassed numerous academic honors on their way to earning associate degrees from the College.
