Shlea Williams: All-Ohio Community College Academic Team
Lakewood resident one of 11 honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Shlea Williams of Lakewood 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.
Williams, who received third-team honors, is studying early childhood education at Tri-C and expects to earn her associate degree by December 2020. She intends to continue her studies at a four-year school after graduation while pursuing a career in social work.
She is a Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Scholar at Tri-C and is involved with Black American Scholars and the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland.

- Metropolitan Campus: Akili Maanda of Cleveland (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)
