  Getting Personal – Want a Phone Call from Sherman’s New President?

Jon C. Schwartzbauer, D.C.

Have a 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 area.

“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.
