St. Lucia student wins 2013 ACCESS Scholarship award from Ashworth College

Leading online accredited school, Ashworth College awarded a 2013 ACCESS Scholarship to Ackla Euristhee-George from Castries, St. Lucia.

The Ashworth College Continuing Education for Student Success (ACCESS) Scholarship program was originally developed in 2011 by Ashworth. It awards up to $25,000 each year to new and prospective diploma and degree students interested in pursuing their education online in one of Ashworth College’s 115+ diploma, degree and online certificate programs.

Euristhee-George has always had a respect for the environment, which is why she hopes to one day own an estate that not only teaches others about the environment and animals, but also serves as a source of food and a place for field trips and festivities. Already working in the community to better the lives of children, Eurishee-George hopes earning her Bachelors Degree in Business Administration will help her make her goals a reality.

“Achieving a college education is important to me because it has given me the confidence to go after my dreams. It has allowed me to be a source of encouragement and motivation to others,” Euristhee-George said. “I have persuaded over five of my friends who were not interested in college to attend Ashworth College. They have all embraced it because of its affordability, credibility, convenience and the opportunities it has created.”

The bachelor’s degree online programs from Ashworth College are nationally accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). The fifteen discipline specific associate degree programs are designed to give students the best advantage when pursuing future career opportunities.

“Education can take skills – and income – to the next level. We’re excited that through the ACCESS Scholarship program we can help create learning opportunities for those students needing something tailored to their specific situation or needs,” said Dr. Leslie Gargiulo, Ashworth College Chief Academic Officer. “The ACCESS Scholarship program has already proven to be an amazing opportunity for us to recognize deserving students and to help provide the educational foundation that will help set the course for their life ahead.”

“The ACCESS Scholarship program was founded to honor Ashworth’s late President and CEO, Gary Keisling’s personal mission of opening the doors of education to the underserved education population of America. We’re excited to present these scholarships,” Dr. Gargiulo added.
