Peachtree Corners, Georgia (PressExposure) February 29, 2012 -- Ashworth College, a leading online school and provider of education for military spouses, announced today that it is a sponsor of Army Wife Network's Field Exercise seminar at Ft. Gordon, February 29-March 1, 2012.
Field Exercise is a grassroots seminar series created by Army Wife Network (AWN) as a way to empower and rejuvenate military families. Attendees are able to network with other families and to receive information for becoming successful both in the military and in life. AWN hosts these events throughout the year, rotating among posts.
"Education plays a major role in the lives of military spouses and they are aware of how it can make a significant difference in their careers and the family's well-being," said Rodney Butler, U.S. Army First Sergeant, Retired and Ashworth College Military Education Coordinator. "As a sponsor of the Field Exercise series we can talk with spouses one-on-one and show them how attainable an online education can be - both in terms of affordability and in the flexibility to meet the demands of the military lifestyle."
Many of Ashworth's programs have particular appeal to military spouses including career diploma and certificate programs as well as associate and bachelor's degree programs in business, early childhood education and health care. With more than accredited 115 online programs, the online school is approved for a number of military benefit programs including Post 9/11 GI Bill, Montgomery GI Bill, GoArmyEd and MyCAA.
"It's Ashworth's mission to ensure that our programs meet the needs of the military spouse," Butler added. "Our accredited degree programs are as low as $64 dollars per credit hour, compared to similar schools that push theirs as high as $250 per credit hour. And with zero out of pocket costs, it's common for a military spouse to earn an Ashworth career diploma, certificate or degree using only MyCAA benefits." In addition to sponsoring the Army Wife Network Field Exercise series, Ashworth has been further recognized as a Yellow Ribbon School and as a military friendly school by both G.I. Jobs and Military Advanced Education magazines. The online school also supports a campus chapter of the Student Veteran's Association and was a sponsor of Military Spouse magazine's 2010 and 2011 Military Spouse of the Year Award programs.
