Ashworth College (http://www.ashworthcollege.edu), a leading accredited online school, announced that Cerise Lake, Ashworth College Human Resource Manager, has been recognized by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (EGSR) and the Office of the Secretary of Defense for contributing to “national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve Force”.

EGSR was established with the intention of assisting civilian employers to address and alleviate conflict that may arise due to the employee’s military obligations.

Many military servicemen and women, as well as their spouses, choose to earn online college degrees due in large part to the flexibility of having their studies available to them no matter where they are stationed. Online study also coincides with their often changing schedules.

Rob Klapper, President of Ashworth College, expressed gratitude for Lake’s years of dedication to the mission and values of the school. He also said, "We’re proud of our ability to provide affordable, accredited online programs to military personnel, military spouses and the veteran community.
