Company Provides An Active Link Between Industry and Education

A ten-story tall brick building just east of downtown Roanoke houses a software company with a global reach.  Meridium, Inc. works with companies around the world to help those companies manage and empower their assets using a wealth of modern technologies. Bejai Powell is a full-time IT administrator at Meridium and also serves as an instructor at the Roanoke Valley Campus, thus providing an active link between industry and education.

Through Powell’s connection, the company has invited ANU’s IT students to attend several relevant events including a .net event conducted by Amazon web services. 

Meridium and ANU enjoy a mutually-beneficial relationship; the company offers tangible support for education while American National University students are able to gain keen insight into their industry of choice.  In consideration of Meridium’s support for ANU, Campus Director Ron Bradbury was pleased to present Meridium, Inc. with the Distinguished Community Employer Award.
