Military Spouse Receives an ACCESS Scholarship for an Online College Degree with Ashworth College
Ashworth College, a leading online school, announced that military spouse Rhonda McMullen is the recipient of a 2012 ACCESS Scholarship. Stationed in Landstuhl, Germany, she's pursuing an online Early Childhood Education Bachelor’s Degree program.
With the family currently stationed in Landstuhl, Germany, this full-time mother of twin toddlers, full-time student, and full-time employee eventually plans to build a career in child and youth psychology.
“Ashworth College has already done so much for me in regards to my education goal,” said McMullen who has already completed Ashworth’s online associate degree in psychology program. “From the course materials to the amazing staff members I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with, I don’t think that I would have continued my education if it weren't for discovering Ashworth. I’ve enjoyed every moment.
The Ashworth College Continuing Education for Student Success (ACCESS) Scholarship program was developed by the online school and awards up to $25,000 annually to prospective diploma and degree students who are interested in pursuing their education online in one of Ashworth College’s or sister school James Madison High School’s 115+ diploma, degree and online certificate programs.
Ashworth College and James Madison High School are leading online schools. Together they have built a tradition of excellence spanning 25 years by offering students worldwide more than 115 online college degrees, online certificate programs, career training, and online high school diploma options that are affordable and fit the schedules of non-traditional students and working adults.
“Service members, military spouses and veterans are an important part of the Ashworth student family and it is always an honor to help improve the lives of those who dedicate themselves to serving our country,” said Rodney Butler, U.S. Army First Sergeant, Retired and Ashworth College Military Education Coordinator.
A Yellow Ribbon School, Ashworth has been further recognized as a military friendly school by both G.I. Jobs and Military Advanced Education magazines. The online school also sponsored Military Spouse magazine’s 2010 and 2011 Military Spouse of the Year Award programs.
About the Gary Keisling ACCESS Scholarship program

The ACCESS program honors the legacy of the online school’s late Chairman of the Board, Gary Keisling, whose personal and professional mission was to offer affordable and accessible education to underserved populations who historically have had limited access to educational opportunities or an accredited diploma or degree.
For more than 25 years Keisling was regarded as an industry leader and advocate for continuing education. His influence on distance education will continue to benefit students for many years to come.
