It’s an annual tradition at the University of Regina: students entering the Paul J. Hill School of Business are presented with a Hill Legacy Pin. Upon graduation, the pin is returned and given to a new student, creating a legacy that connects past and present students. This year’s pinning ceremony was held on Friday, September 19, 2014.

“The students will have the pin for the duration of their undergraduate program to wear to Faculty functions and events,” explains Paul J. Hill School of Business Dean, Andrew Gaudes.

At the ceremony, the Hill Legacy Ring was unveiled. When students graduate, they will return their pins they have had for the duration of their studies, and in exchange will be presented with a ring.  “The ring signifies they have successfully completed their program and are among respected alumni,” says Dean Gaudes.

The Hill School was excited to work with Rachel Mielke and Hillberg & Berk to produce the Hill Legacy Ring. Mielke, a graduate from the BAdmin program in 2003, is founder and CEO of Hillberg & Berk. This Saskatchewan firm was founded in 2007 and specializes in handcrafted, artisan jewellery.

“Working with a member of our alumni and a local company is important to us for this project,” says Dean Gaudes.
