NORCROSS — Ashworth College announced recently that Ashworth alumnus Ervisa Ritt was named an outstanding graduate and awarded a certificate of recognition from the Distance Education and Training Council. The DETC annually recognizes graduates who have excelled as distance education students. Ritt is among 45 graduates from 37 accredited DETC member institutions to be recognized this year.
Ritt, who is stationed at Fort Stewart, recently earned her associate’s degree in criminal justice and is now studying for a bachelor’s degree at Ashworth.
“My education in criminal justice will benefit me when I finally transition to civilian life. My ultimate goal is to become a police officer and I will have Ashworth to thank for that,” Ritt said.
Ritt said the flexibility of Ashworth’s courses allow her to continue her education online whether she’s at home with her husband and 3-year-old daughter, on base or stationed in the field.
“Ervisa is a great example of how online education can easily become part of everyday life and still successfully balance family, career and studies,” said Gary M. Keisling, Ashworth College chairman and CEO. “She is clearly a role model and we’re proud to have her as an Ashworth alumna.”
Ashworth College and DETC also recognized Didiayer Snyder, two-time Ashworth College graduate and a current team designer on the Emmy Award-winning “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
“The most gratifying aspect of our work is reading about the success of the graduates of our accredited colleges,” said Michael P. Lambert, DETC executive director.
