on Wednesday, 07 November 2012.
PEACHTREE CORNERS, Georgia – November 7, 2012– Ashworth College, a leading online school and provider of military education options for servicemembers, veterans, and military spouses, announced that on November 8-9, it will sponsor the Army Wife Network’s Field Exercise seminar at Ft. Leavenworth.
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.
"Military spouses know that the right education can make a significant difference in their family's well-being," said Melissa Maddox, Military Education Manager for Ashworth College. "By sponsoring the AWN Field Exercise program we are able to show military spouses how attainable an online education can be – all on their terms."
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 healthcare. 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, and MyCAA.
"It's our goal to meet the education needs of military spouses by ensuring that our programs are affordable, flexible and relevant to today's job market," Maddox 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 AWN, Ashworth has been 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 the The Fort Benning Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation and has sponsored Military Spouse magazine's Military Spouse of the Year Award programs.
