A 1979 graduate and former associate professor at Sherman College, Plummer has a long history of serving the profession as a leader in state and national chiropractic groups. His highest office is one he currently holds as chairman of the board of the Federation of Straight Chiropractors and Organizations, representing chiropractors and chiropractic interests on an international level.
Plummer has also served as chairman of the board of the Palmetto State Chiropractic Association in South Carolina and president of the Sherman College Alumni Association. He served on the South Carolina Board of Chiropractic Examiners for nine years.
Plummer is the developer of several educational videos for patients and chiropractic professionals. He is also the developer of Success Secrets Seminars. He serves as a member of the Sherman College Board of Regents. He is a chiropractic career advisor and a member of both the post-graduate and extern program faculty of Sherman College.
Among his numerous honors, Plummer was named Chiropractor of the Year by both Sherman College and the FSCO in 2001. The Palmetto State Chiropractic Association named him Chiropractor of the Year in 2000.
A native of New Jersey, Plummer and his wife and children moved to Spartanburg so that he could become a chiropractor. He opened an office a short distance from the college after graduation and maintains a busy family practice there.
