Tri-C’s Mariana Feitosa De Melo named to All-Ohio Academic Team

CLEVELAND, April 1, 2019: Mariana Feitosa De Melo of Fairlawn was one of 11 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-nine 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.

Ms. Feitosa De Melo, who received third-team honors, is studying radiography at Tri-C and expects to earn her associate degree by August 2020. Her goal is work to at a hospital as a radiologic technologist.

She moved to the United States from Brazil four years ago to pursue her education and has regularly been on the dean’s list at Tri-C. She said she would like the opportunity to mentor other students. Through her church, she volunteers and works with kids.

Ms. Feitosa De Melo joined the following Tri-C students — designated by campus — as All-Ohio:

·         Eastern Campus: Kevin Jones of Streetsboro (first team) and Megan Nakasen of Euclid (third team)

·         Metropolitan Campus: Akili Maanda of Cleveland (third team) and Shlea Williams of Lakewood (third team)

·         Western Campus: Helen Feudo of Parma (third team), John Pesarchick of Hinckley (third team) and Linda White of Middleburg Heights (third team)

·         Westshore Campus: Norhan Abdelmaged of Westlake (third team), Elsa McKnight of Lakewood (first team), and Adolphe Musanga of Brook Park (first 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 take place in Columbus on April 25 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.
