Tri-C’s Macon Hoover Named to All-Ohio Academic Team
Brunswick resident one of nine students honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Macon Hoover of Brunswick 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.
Hoover, who received third-team honors, expects to earn an Associate of Arts degree from Tri-C this spring. After graduation, he plans to attend The Ohio State University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in English.
He served two years in student government at Western Campus. Hoover was also active with the campus’ Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter, holding positions as vice president of scholarship and district representative for the Ohio region.
Away from campus, he enjoys ice skating — which he does once a week — and works as a shift supervisor at Starbucks.
Hoover 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: Shahzeb Malik of Strongsville (first team)
- Westshore Campus: Joseph Dzingeleski of Lakewood (first team) and 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.
