Valued Community Partner Recognized for Educational Assistance and Employment Opportunities

May 24, 2016

The ANU Harrisonburg Campus recently presented Shentel with the Distinguished Community Employer Award due to its ongoing support of career college education.  The Distinguished Community Employer Award was created to recognize community partners who foster career success by providing employment, externship opportunities, and educational assistance to ANU students and graduates.

Shentel, a telecommunications company, provides tuition assistance benefits to a number of its employees who are students at the ANU Harrisonburg Campus and at ANU Online, including Tina Reynard, who works as a project coordinator; Ginger Eaton, an inventory clerk; Cara Lord, a fleet coordinator; and John Gatchell, Jr., who works as an outside plant design engineer.

“Shentel is a valuable partner to ANU because of its legacy of investing in and positively impacting its employees and the community.”

The employee tuition assistance benefits provided by Shentel are matched by the exclusive ANU Business Partnership Grant, which allows the Shentel employees to graduate with less out-of-pocket expense.

“Shentel is a valuable partner to ANU because of its legacy of investing in and positively impacting its employees and the community,” said ANU Harrisonburg Campus director Wandile Maseko. “ANU looks forward to continuing its relationship with Shentel as it completes its recent acquisition of nTelos Wireless, which will see 300 jobs added to the company”
