Racing Toward the Vision: Sherman Lyceum 2005 Offers Entertainment and Inspiration
by Rebecca Clusserath, Sherman College Director of Lyceum

Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic’s Lyceum program not only offers outstanding seminars during the day to enhance your practice and update you on the latest in chiropractic, but it also offers entertainment and inspiration during the evening Big Top sessions. This year’s event, to be held May 26-29, 2005, in Spartanburg, SC, will be no exception as chiropractic leaders and celebrities shine brightly under the evening skies.

Sherman’s Lyceum is held Memorial Day weekend each year, and this year’s program offers 31 seminars with attendees eligible to receive up to 24 continuing education credits. Lyceum, whose theme this year is “Racing Toward the Vision,” also features an expo, guest speakers, a golf tournament and a kids program, all highlighting the holiday weekend in Spartanburg, S.C.

Claude Lessard, D.C., will kick off Thursday evening with passion and laughter like only he can deliver. Then chiropractic leaders including Sherman President Jerry L. Hardee, Ed.D.; Gerard Clum, D.C., president of Life University West; and Phil McMaster, D.C., chairman of the Board of Trustees at New Zealand College of Chiropractic, will share their messages about how to stay focused on racing toward the vision of bringing straight chiropractic to the world.

Entertainment will continue Thursday evening with personal growth speaker Steve Chandler. Chandler, author of seven books, including 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself, has been described by Lisa Schnebly of the Arizona Republic as, “one of the funniest people I have ever heard, and yet so rock solid and so reassuring; he lights you up with the glow of his internal neon.”

In his presentation, Ten Commitments to Your Success, Chandler will reveal the underlying dynamic of commitment itself, how to access it, and then how to apply it to the 10 categories of your life that usually remain uncommitted until it’s too late.

Hall-of-Fame jockey and star of the blockbuster movie Seabiscuit, Gary Stevens is Lyceum’s keynote speaker on Friday night. Stevens, who has multiple race wins including the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and the Belmont Stakes, has been a chiropractic advocate for many years.

Preparation for competition includes getting his spine checked the night before the “big race.” Stevens will share his personal stories from both on and off the track and how chiropractic has been a part of his life, enhancing his performance as a jockey. His book, The Perfect Ride, will be available, and autographs and pictures will follow his presentation.

Our traditional fireworks display will cap off Friday evening with a bang! So when you make your plans to attend Sherman College Lyceum May 26-29, be sure you’re also on campus Thursday and Friday nights. Come and be inspired and motivated about life...about chiropractic.

Other Lyceum 2005 speakers include Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., Arno Burnier, D.C., Reggie Gold, D.C., Mike Lenarz, D.C., Terry Yochum, D.C., DACBR, Tom Sterne and Keith Carter, Anna Allen, M.S., Bill Esteb, Heidi Farrell, Judy Campanale, D.C., Richard Barwell, D.C., Jeanne Ohm, D.C., Kirk Eriksen, D.C., Ralph Boone, Ph.D., D.C., Cherie Goble, D.C., Dick Plummer, D.C., Randy Baze, D.C., and Nalyn Marcus, D.C.
