  LYCEUM 2004 
 Career Day Speakers Offer the Best of Both Worlds

At Lyceum Career Day 2004, prospective students and their families will learn about an exciting and rewarding career as a doctor of chiropractic, meet faculty, students and alumni, tour the campus and observe hands-on chiropractic, basic science and research demonstrations.

Attendees will also learn how to bring their career plans to life through Sherman College’s financial aid and job placement programs. And they’ll meet chiropractors from around the world and enjoy lunch with faculty, staff and students.

But another aspect of Career Day presents two unique perspectives on a career in chiropractic – one from Dr. Reggie Gold, a seasoned chiropractor and public speaker, and one from Cara Davis, a sixth-quarter student at Sherman.

Reggie Gold, D.C., Ph.C., has traveled the globe spreading the chiropractic message and is responsible for inspiring hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people of all ages to pursue a career in chiropractic. He retired from a highly successful practice in Spring Valley, NY, to help Dr. Thom Gelardi develop Sherman College; he went on to serve as dean of the college and philosophy instructor and contributed his time to fund raising and recruiting students. When Dr. Gold left Sherman College in the late 1970s it was to help establish and serve as president of ADIO Institute of Straight Chiropractic in Pennsylvania.

Dr. Gold is author of The Triune of Life, a treatise on traditional chiropractic philosophy. The work earned him a Ph.C. from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1962. It is now a main philosophy text at Sherman College and has been read and treasured by generations of chiropractors and students. Dr. Gold’s strong communication skills, visionary insight and unfailing dedication to the chiropractic principle continually draw him into the spotlight.

Cara Davis is a sixth-quarter student from Greenville, SC. She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of South Carolina Spartanburg and is a tour guide and work-study student for the Admission Office.

Cara is one of three students who have agreed to keep online journals of their experiences at Sherman College. The journals are posted to the college’s web site and will later become a main feature of a new web site geared specifically toward prospective students. The new site will be posted later in 2004, but until then, prospective students can get a sneak peek at the journals by visiting the Student Life section of the college’s main web site,

Cara’s journal entries offer a glimpse into the day-to-day life of a chiropractic student through written entries and photos. She enjoys helping prospective students learn about life at Sherman and looks forward to speaking at Career Day. “I think the Career Day program and the student journals are great ways to introduce prospective students to the daily activities of chiropractic college,” she said.
