Kevin Jones: All-Ohio Community College Academic Team
Streetsboro resident one of 11 students honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Kevin Jones of Streetsboro 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.
Jones, who received first-team honors, expects to graduate from Tri-C in May with an Associate of Arts degree and a certificate in Conflict Resolution and Peace Studies. He plans to transfer to Case Western Reserve University, where he has already begun taking classes.
At Case, Jones intends to major in history and economics with a minor in public policy. His goal is to become a lawyer specializing in intellectual property law.
He said Tri-C’s Degree in Three program shaped his experience at the College and led to his success and involvement in campus life. Jones served as treasurer of student government at Eastern Campus and a peer mentor for Black American Council.
Jones was also president of the leadership council at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Scholars Academy.
He joined the following Tri-C students — designated by campus — as All-Ohio:
- Eastern Campus: 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), Elsa McKnight of Lakewood (first team) and Adolphe Musanga of Brook Park (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.
