suggestion for Sherman College’s new president? Need something from Sherman that
you’re currently not getting? Sherman President Jon Schwartzbauer, D.C., wants
to hear from you. Really.
Sherman’s fourth president has made a personal commitment to call five Sherman
alumni/supporters each day. He says he wants to find new ways to “connect and
build stronger bonds” with alumni and friends. He even included the idea as part
of his plan of “Things To Do If I Become Sherman’s Next President.”
Now that Schwartzbauer actually is president, he’s busy making those calls. He’s
already phoned more than 100 people. “I want alumni to know that we want to
continue to support them – even after they graduate,” he says. “I want to know
what we can do to help them in practice and in life.”
Schwartzbauer says during one of his recent conversations, an alumnus joked that
he could always use more patients. Not taking the comment at face value,
Schwartzbauer forwarded some information to Director of
Alumni Relations Marggi Roldan.
She contacted the alum to check and update his contact information so that when
potential patients call the college looking for a Sherman grad (at least a
weekly occurrence), she’ll be ready to recommend that doctor to folks in his
“We hope to have more meaningful contact with alumni to show them that we
genuinely care and we want to help meet their needs,” Schwartzbauer says.
