Alumnus Philipp gives back to University
Thanks to a donation from Haul-All Equipment Systems, the University of Lethbridge campus now sports one of the flashiest trash bins around.
The company was looking for an opportunity to test out a new method of wrapping its well-known containers with logos or artwork, and with alumnus Kelly Philipp (BMgt ’97) as Haul-All’s vice-president and CFO, U of L pride came into play.
“I’m just really proud to be an alumnus of the University and I thought being our 45th year, this was a great way to celebrate this milestone,” says Philipp. “Plus, I absolutely loved the design and I thought it’d be a great challenge to incorporate it onto one of our hide-a-bag containers.”
Philipp is often on campus, teaching finance as a sessional instructor since 2003, and he’s always looking at ways to enhance the appeal of the University.
“We have such a beautiful setting here with some wonderful artwork spread about campus and from our perspective, we look at this as a sculpture that we can add,” he says.
