Amanda Lowe: All-Ohio Community College Academic Team
North Royalton resident among students honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Amanda Lowe of North Royalton 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.
Lowe, who received third-team honors, expects to graduate from Tri-C in May with an Associate of Arts. She plans to transfer to Cleveland State University in the fall to study health science with an emphasis on pre-physical therapy. Her goal is to earn a doctorate in physical therapy.
She serves as president of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter at Tri-C’s Western Campus in Parma. In addition, she is a Mandel Scholar and part of the College’s Mandel Continuing Scholars Program with Cleveland State.
Lowe also volunteers at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank during the summer.
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)
- Westshore Campus: Jada Frye of North Ridgeville (third team), 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.
