All-Ohio Academic Team 2014

May 5, 2014

Sixty of the highest achieving community-college students from around Ohio were honored Wednesday, April 30, as part of the All-Ohio Academic Team Awards. Clark State Community College had three students named to the third team:

Danitsa Camarillo Gomez: Engineering Transfer student who plans to complete a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering
Candace Hampton: Online student in the Accounting program, also taking classes through Franklin University to complete a bachelor’s degree in accounting and forensic accounting.
Nancy McGlothen: Graduated from Clark State in 2013 with a degree in Professional Office Administration, taking classes at Clark State through Franklin University pursuing a bachelor’s degree.

“All three of these students are leaders at Clark State and we couldn’t be more proud,” said Dr. Jo Alice Blondin, president, Clark State Community College. “Their involvement in Phi Theta Kappa as well as other student activities has not only made them well-rounded students, but role models for their peers.”

 “Congratulations to the fine scholars that make up the 2014 All-Ohio Academic Team,” said Karen Rafinski, interim president of the Ohio Association of Community Colleges (OACC). “Their dedication to their academic studies and also their community leadership are an inspiration to us all.”

All Ohio Academic Team members were honored at a luncheon attended by Ohio Senate President Keith Faber, R-Celina, Senate Education Chair Peggy Lehner, R-Kettering, and many other state lawmakers and distinguished guests.

Generously supported by Honda of America, the All Ohio Academic Team Awards works to promote academic excellence and intellectual rigor, leadership and service, and the extension of education beyond the classroom to benefit society.

Since 1997, the All-Ohio Academic Team Awards program has provided more than $250,000 in scholarships to hundreds of the top community-college students in Ohio, thereby enabling them to realize their educational goals. Phi Theta Kappa International assists in ranking the students.

In fact, many students credit the recognition received through this program with increasing their educational aspirations. It is a core belief of the All-Ohio program, that each individual has the potential to achieve their dreams.
