Rebecca Groth: All-Ohio Community College Academic Team
University Heights resident among honorees from Cuyahoga Community College
Rebecca Groth of University Heights 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.
Groth, who received second-team honors, expects to graduate from Tri-C with an Associate of Arts degree in May. She plans to transfer to a four-year school in the fall, with Cleveland State University, Duke University and Washington University in St. Louis on her short list.
She wants to focus her studies on political science or public policy before finding a career that allows her to improve society.
Groth serves as student government president at Tri-C’s Eastern Campus in Highland Hills, where she is also president of Joint Student Council and active with the campus chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
Groth joined the following Tri-C students — designated by campus — as All-Ohio:
- Eastern Campus: Dylan Doyle of Shaker Heights (third 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), 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.
