Mario LoPrinzi, owner of Axiom Home Services, Inc. got a little help from someone in-the-know before he was able to run a successful HVAC company. Now, he wants to give back to the next generation and make sure that more students see the value and need in the HVAC industry.
The Gustave A. Larson Company helped him to do just that at the 5th Annual Karl G. Larson Charity Golf Outing in Salt Lake City this summer. The money raised from this charity event, which was hosted in 4 cities across the US, helps fund research and scholarships for the HVAC industry.
Karl Larson, who passed away in 2012, loved this industry as much as we do. The Larson HVAC Lab at the College of Engineering & Applied Science at the University of Colorado – Boulder helps to keep that legacy going, allowing students to conduct research in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Because of the efforts of Mario and people like him, the events were able to raise a substantial amount of scholarship money, which can help someone with drive to get started in the HVAC industry. Entering into this field has been great for Mario and his family, and we want to see more people prosper in and benefit the industry.
