In high school, Philip was an active member of the Student Council. This has led him into his service at Samford in both his fraternity, Sigma Chi, and College Republicans. Philip has received the TSYS Future Scholar Award for his excellence as a student and commitment in co-curricular activities. In preparation for medical school, Philip interned with an ER physician over the summer and plans to continue interning during the school year. When not involved on campus or with his internship, Philip regularly volunteers with the Bessemer Boys and Girls Club.
