Tri-C’s Joseph Dzingeleski Named to All-Ohio Academic Team
Lakewood resident one of nine students honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Joseph Dzingeleski of Lakewood was one of nine 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-eight 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.
Dzingeleski, who received first-team honors, graduated from Tri-C with honors in December while earning an Associate of Arts degree. He plans to begin studying communications at Cleveland State University in the fall and received a Tri-C- to-CSU transfer scholarship.
In March, Dzingeleski was named a 2020 Coca-Cola Academic Team Bronze Scholar for his academic achievement at Tri-C. The honor is reserved for a select group of students from across the nation.
While attending Tri-C’s Westshore Campus, Dzingeleski served as a student ambassador and summer intern. In addition, he was founding president of the campus’s Lambda Gender-Sexuality Alliance chapter and a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
Dzingeleski joined the following Tri-C students — designated by campus — as All-Ohio:
- Eastern Campus: Oktay Adatepe of Woodmere (third team) and Yudai Yamamoto of Woodmere (third team)
- Metropolitan Campus: Jamillah Murdock of University Heights (third team), Andrea Searcy of Cleveland (third team) and Samantha Stauffer of North Olmsted (third team)
- Western Campus: Macon Hoover of Brunswick (third team) and Shahzeb Malik of Strongsville (first team)
- Westshore Campus: Matthew Phillips of North Ridgeville (third team)
First-team honorees will receive $1,000 scholarships, while second-team members get $500 scholarships and third-team members $250. Team members are recognized by the state in April as part of 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.
