Educational Assistance Program Gives Employees Chance to Excel

Invest in Yourself

On September 23rd, 2017 Sheirra Granville, Gas South Customer Care Department representative, graduated from Strayer University with a master’s degree in adult education and development. She started school in July 2015 and graduated with a noteworthy 4.0 GPA.

Sheirra took advantage of Gas South’s Educational Assistance Program that supports employees who wish to continue their education. The program is designed to assist employees in their professional development by encouraging voluntary academic studies that contribute to improved performance.

Sheirra chose to attend Strayer University to enhance her skills and position herself for even more career advancement opportunities.

“The tuition reimbursement program is a great way to cover the cost of attending school,” Sheirra said. “This program has supported me financially by creating a way to pay off loans at the end of the course.”

Continuing her education has enhanced the training Sheirra offers her teammates at Gas South – specifically, the skills she needs to efficiently prepare training programs for adults and effectively guide a best-in-class customer care team.

“If you’re thinking about continuing your education, go for it,” Sheirra added. “It’s worth the investment to get the additional skills needed to make you more marketable in your industry or desired field. Investing in yourself will open doors for greater things.”

Sheirra isn’t stopping there—her next goal is to earn a Ph.D in educational leadership.

The Educational Assistance Program is just one of the many benefits that Gas South offers employees. Our company is proud to invest in employees because we want to help make their lives better—and  their commitment makes us better.
