High-Achieving Scholars selected for Tri-C Honors Program Fellowships

CLEVELAND, August 8, 2019: Forty top high school graduates have been selected for a Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) Honors Program Fellowship, which offers scholarships to cover tuition, fees and books as they work toward an associate degree.

The College’s sixth fellowship class features students with at least a 3.5 GPA and outstanding ACT/SAT scores. By entering the scholarship program, they commit to being full-time students, maintaining a high GPA and earning a degree from Tri-C within two years.

The students signed commitment letters with the College during an Aug. 7, 2019 ceremony at Tri-C’s Jerry Sue Thornton Center in Cleveland. Each scholarship — funded by donors to the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation — is valued at up to $5,160 per academic year.

“These gifted students chose Tri-C to begin their college journey,” said Herbert Mausser, the College’s director of Honors and Scholars Programs. “I look forward to seeing them cross the commencement stage to collect their degrees in the spring of 2021.”

The following students, listed by hometown, received honors fellowships to pursue academic success at Cuyahoga Community College:
* Bay Village: Haley Sathre;
* Berea: Marissa Montag and Gage Young;
* Brecksville: Zachary Benson;
* Brook Park: Dana Miller and Colton Wright;
* Brooklyn: Abigail Zonza;
* Brunswick: Adrianna Kania, Analise Laughlin and Daniel Spade;
* Cleveland: Juliana Hale, Ivy Hughes, Tanya Medrano, Edlisa Santiago and Alyssa Williams;
* Fairview Park: Taiylor Sloan;
* Garfield Heights: June Fertig;
* Independence: Seamus Kral;
* Lakewood: Sarah Sacha and Tyler Williams;
* North Olmsted: Kollin Reddinger and Patience Smith;
* Northfield: Steven Swiger;
* Olmsted Falls: Samantha Miller;

* Strongsville: Malak Hassan;

The honors fellowship places special emphasis on academic planning, mentoring and portfolio building to reflect student work. Smaller honors class sizes also ensure specialized attention for students.


The program is designed to support eventual transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor’s and other advanced degrees. Previous Honors Program Fellows amassed numerous academic honors on their way to earning associate degrees from the College.
