Hitachi Automotive Systems Americas was recently selected as a Distinguished Community Employer by the Danville Campus (Kentucky). Brad Logan, senior administrator of human resources and administration at Hitachi recently visited the campus to accept the award.
The campus has worked closely with Hitachi for more than five years. Hitachi provides tuition assistance to its employees, which is matched by the American National University Business Partnership Grant, an exclusive grant which matches one dollar for every two dollars contributed by an employer. In addition, Hitachi also employs American National University graduates from the management and accounting programs.
Eva Cocanougher, a Hitachi employee for 23 years, used her tuition assistance benefit and the Business Partnership Grant to help fund her education at American National University. “I think that it’s great,” she said of the Business Partnership Grant. “I can’t think of any other school that does that.”
She has almost completed her associate’s degree program in business administration-management, and she plans to return to earn a second associate’s degree in accounting. She also hopes to continue her education and earn her bachelor’s degree at the Lexington Campus. She hopes to use her degree to advance into a management position at Hitachi.
