Tri-C’s Nicole Kaib Named to All-Ohio Academic Team
North Royalton resident one of 12 honored from Cuyahoga Community College
Nicole Kaib of North Royalton was one of a dozen 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. Seventy-three 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.
Kaib, who received third-team honors, is studying interior design at Tri-C and expects to earn her associate degree in 2022. After graduation, she plans to open her own design firm that specializes in aging-in-place design to help individuals stay in their home as they age.
She is a recent inductee to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter at Eastern Campus.
Kaib joined the following Tri-C students — designated by campus — as All-Ohio:
- Eastern Campus: Charese Harrison of Maple Heights (first team) and Isabel Ruiz-Flint of Solon (first team)
- Metropolitan Campus: Jameelah Johnson of Cleveland (third team) and Stellah Ottichilo of Cleveland (third team)
- Western Campus: Geri Bakushi of Lakewood (first team), Tavia Pearson of Cleveland (third team) and Janice Willier of New Orleans, Louisiana (third team)
- Westshore Campus: Sara Alnaasan of North Olmsted (first team), Kylie Cianciolo of Fairview Park (first team), Lindsay Gunn of Bay Village (third team) and Catherine Parchem of Westlake (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.
