Log on to Watch Pat Summerall’s Spotlight on Sherman College

Recognizing Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic’s contributions to the chiropractic profession and the world, Pat Summerall Productions recently selected the college as part of its “Spotlight on Education,” a 30-minute special edition of its paid program Champions of Industry.

The program aired nationwide on The Discovery Channel network on October 14 at 7 a.m. and November 11 at 8 a.m. and was hosted by Pat Summerall, the acclaimed broadcaster known as “the voice of the NFL.” Three other cutting-edge institutions were also featured, and the segment devoted to Sherman College lasted approximately five minutes.

When introducing Sherman College on the program, Summerall noted several reasons why chiropractic stands out as a satisfying career. “People have a lot of career choices today,” he said. “Some are searching for a career that’s growing in a field that is expanding. Some are looking for a way to help their fellow man. And some want to have the ability to have their own business….I’m here to talk about a place which can fill all three desires: Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic.”

During the feature, Summerall discussed the growth of the chiropractic profession and the increasing acceptance of chiropractic as a separate but integral part of health care. Footage shows the college’s 80-acre campus, students and professors in basic and clinical science classes, and students and faculty doctors working with patients in the on-campus Chiropractic Health Center.

Summerall also noted the growing need for chiropractors in America. “In the coming years, chiropractic will become an integral part of maintaining optimum wellness for millions of people,” he said. “And since Sherman students are dedicated to advancing chiropractic care, they may someday change the world.”

Sherman College was selected for inclusion in the program earlier this year, and a videographer for Pat Summerall Productions visited campus on July 14 to conduct interviews and tape classroom and Health Center activities for the production. Streaming video of the segment featuring Sherman College will be posted at Pat Summerall Productions’ web site, www.theeducationstation.com for one year.

During its search for institutions to highlight, Pat Summerall Productions sought U.S. colleges that exemplify leadership and success and have unique curricula and missions. The institutions selected are those that are “engaged in innovative efforts to deliver on their missions,” according to the company.

The “Champions of Industry” series serves as the company’s recognition award for excellence in business practices and has been airing for eight years. Companies attain champion status “because of their integrity, ingenuity and proven leadership in their respective industries,” the Summerall web site notes.
