Ameera Muntaser: All-Ohio Community College Academic Team
Olmsted Township resident joins students honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Ameera Muntaser of Olmsted Township 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.
Muntaser, who received third-team honors, is studying political science at Tri-C and expects to earn her associate degree by 2020. She then plans to transfer to Cleveland State University to pursue a law degree.
She is involved with Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Tri-C’s Westshore Campus in Westlake. Away from school, she volunteers weekly with the Islamic Center of Cleveland to prepare meals for those in need.
Muntaser 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 North Royalton (third team)
- Westshore Campus: Jada Frye of North Ridgeville (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.
