Ashworth College, a leading online college based in Norcross, Georgia is pleased to announce that Josh Pastner, head coach of the men’s basketball team at Georgia Tech, and ACC Coach of the Year 2016-2017, will be this year’s commencement speaker.
Entering his ninth season as a NCAA head coach, Pastner knows how far tenacity, dedication and teamwork can go when you set goals and stick to them. Implementing a high-energy style of play and creative offensive and defensive schemes, Pastner and his staff guided the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets all the way to the finals of the NIT for the first time in 46 years. At 39 years old, Pastner already has a long list of accomplishments and continues to inspire his student athletes and those around him.
“I’m honored to be a part of the Ashworth College graduation ceremony to celebrate this year’s hard-working and inspirational graduates,” Pastner said. “Although basketball is a team sport by nature, it takes individual discipline and commitment to achieve something great. Ashworth graduates will be able to use these traits to find continued success during their educational and professional journeys.”
This year marks the 30th anniversary since Ashworth was founded in 1987, and the College is anticipating a record attendance of 2,000 people at the ceremony this year. Graduates and guests are expected to travel from many U.S. states and foreign countries. High school graduates from Ashworth’s online sister school, James Madison High School, will also receive their diplomas during the ceremony.
