  President and provost speak in New Zealand
  Sherman College’s president and provost recently helped many attendees at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic celebrate its theme of “Courage and Commitment” at its Lyceum, held September 12-14 in Auckland.

Jerry L. Hardee, Ed.D., Sherman College president, served as keynote speaker at the event and was charged with challenging and inspiring the listeners. His talk, titled “The Courage of Your Conviction: Building the Chiropractic Profession,” drew together the emotions passed down from his grandmother in the form of simple wisdom, home-spun philosophy and individual courage to motivate and incite the listener to higher levels of personal achievement.

Sherman College Executive Vice President and Provost Myron D. Brown, D.C., added to the event with his pictorial presentation about courage and commitment. During his presentation, Brown presented an historical sketch of both the profession and of Sherman College, which highlighted the principles of courage and commitment that have been the foundation of the Sherman College experience. He traced the evolution of the profession from D.D. Palmer to the newest chiropractic paradigms upheld by Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic.

The Lyceum also featured an array of well-known chiropractic personalities including Gerard Clum, D.C., president of Life Chiropractic College-West; Rob Jackson, D.C.; Dr. Carl Cleveland, D.C., president of Cleveland Chiropractic College; Joan Fallon, D.C., and Bill Esteb.

The “All Black Tie Ball” featured a live band and an auction, which was conducted by Sherman alumnus and New Zealander Barry Rushton, D.C., and raised thousands of dollars to support the college. “All in all the experience was truly unforgettable,” Brown said.
