Stark State College students named to All-Ohio Academic Team

(North Canton, OH – April 22, 2020) – Four Stark State College students are being recognized as members of the 2020 All-Ohio Academic Team, which recognizes some of the best students of the state’s two-year community and technical colleges.

Natalie James, a psychology major from Canton, was named a first-team member and a Coca-Cola Academic Team Silver winner. She will receive a $1,000 scholarship.

Gertrude Muthumbi, a nursing and physics major from Wooster, was named to the second team All-Ohio, while Alexa Peterman (occupational therapy assistant, Louisville) and Robert Wright (computer graphic arts, Uniontown) were named third team All-Ohio.

The All-Ohio Community College Academic Team provides statewide recognition and scholarship opportunities to outstanding two-year college students at Ohio’s 23 community colleges. Students, nominated by their college, must have a minimum 3.5 cumulative grade point average. Selections are based on academic performance, demonstration of leadership and community service involvement.

Although the annual statehouse recognition was canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, each honoree received a certificate, pin and medallion.

The program is co-sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa, the international honors society for two-year colleges, and its Ohio Region. Funding has been made possible through the support of donors like Honda of America Mfg., Inc.
