Adolphe Musanga: All-Ohio Community College Academic Team
Brook Park resident one of 11 students honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Adolphe Musanga of Brook Park was one of 11 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-nine 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.
Musanga, who received first-team honors, is studying business management at Tri-C and expects to earn his associate degree in May. He plans to transfer to Cleveland State University in the fall.
Currently, he is writing a book detailing his experiences immigrating to the United States from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. His goal is to become an entrepreneur and business owner.
He serves as treasurer of the student government at Westshore Campus, where he is also involved with Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and several clubs. He is in the College’s Honors Program and is a Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Scholar.
Musanga joined the following Tri-C students — designated by campus — as All-Ohio:
- Eastern Campus: Kevin Jones of Streetsboro (first team) and Megan Nakasen of Euclid (third team)
- Metropolitan Campus: Akili Maanda of Cleveland (third team) and Shlea Williams of Lakewood (third team)
- Western Campus: Helen Feudo of Parma (third team), Mariana Feitosa De Melo of Fairlawn (third team), John Pesarchick of Hinckley (third team) and Linda White of Middleburg Heights (third team)
- Westshore Campus: Norhan Abdelmaged of Westlake (third team) and Elsa McKnight of Lakewood (first 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 take place in Columbus on April 25 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.
