Tri-Cís Angelique Patton of Euclid Named to All-Ohio Academic Team

Angelique Patton of Euclid was one of seven 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. Fifty-onestudents 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.

Patton earned an Associate of Arts degree from Tri-C in December, graduating with a near-perfect GPA. She continues to take classes at the College while working toward a bachelor’s degree at Cleveland State University.

She hopes to one day open a nonprofit dedicated to helping others unlock their potential.

The second-team All-Ohio Academic Team honoree was selected for the inaugural class at the College’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Humanities Center in 2016 and is involved with the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter at Tri-C’s Eastern Campus in Highland Hills.

Patton joined the following Tri-C students — designated by campus — as All-Ohio:

  • Eastern Campus: Kouame Kouakou of Warrensville Heights(third team)
  • Metropolitan Campus: Heidi Hubbard of South Euclid (third team) and Adekunle Popoola of Cleveland (third team)
  • Western Campus: Bruce Hyde of Parma (first team) and William Funk of Parma (first team)
  • Westshore Campus: Bethany Thomas 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 20 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.
