Sinclair Community College students chosen for the 2023 All-Ohio Academic Team:
Chance Zoe Tuyishime
Sinclair’s honorees are among 74 students from Ohio’s 23 community colleges who were honored during a special virtual event on Friday, April 28, 2023, by Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted and Department of Higher Education Chancellor Randy Gardner. The event was held as part of celebrations of Community College Month in Ohio.
The All-Ohio Academic Team program is a collaboration between the OACC, Phi Theta Kappa national honor society and Honda, the event sponsor.
Sinclair’s honorees are members of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), the international honor society of two-year colleges. Nu Pi is the PTK Chapter at Sinclair Community College. Membership offers students opportunities for personal growth and development of leadership skills by focusing on Phi Theta Kappa's four Hallmarks: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship.
The top-performing students were nominated by college faculty, staff, and leaders. Students recognized as first-team honorees receive $500 scholarships, while second-team members earn $250 scholarships to assist students transferring on to universities to complete their bachelor’s degree requirements. The All-Ohio Academic Team also includes high-achieving students who are planning to move directly into the workforce.
