Stephen Twum Barimah: All-Ohio Community College Academic Team
Cleveland resident among students honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Stephen Twum Barimah of Cleveland 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.
Twum Barimah, who received second-team honors, expects to earn an Associate of Science degree from Tri-C in May. He plans to transfer to Case Western Reserve University this fall to study biochemistry. His goal is to complete medical school and become a pediatric cardiologist.
He is active with the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland and serves as the regional vice president of the academic honors group.
He 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)
- 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.
