CINCINNATI,OH (FOX19)- Cincinnati State Technical and Community College has nominated two students, Joshua Monroe and Shieh Yen Chong, for the 2011 All-USA Academic Team competition.
Neither fits the description of a traditional student, even by community college standards.
- Monroe, a Springfield Township resident, is pursuing an Associate of Science degree and ultimately plans to pursue a PhD in chemical engineering.
Monroe came to Cincinnati State after time in the workforce that included a three-year run as manager of the suburban tire store where he’d begun as an entry-level employee. By taking a voluntary demotion to tire changer, he was able to cut his work hours to 20 a week and attend Cincinnati State full-time.
