Linda White: All-Ohio Community College Academic Team
Middleburg Heights resident one of 11 honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Linda White of Middleburg Heights 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.
White, who received third-team honors, graduated from Tri-C in December with a flawless 4.0 GPA and an Associate of Applied Business degree in accounting. She currently works in the accounting department at Quadax, which serves clients in the health care industry.
She worked toward her degree over three years, primarily through online courses, and was involved with Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Tri-C’s Western Campus in Parma.
White 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) and John Pesarchick of Hinckley (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.
