Dr. Charles Kenya Joins Faculty
Sherman welcomes Dr. Charles Kenya to the faculty as an instructor in X-Ray
Physics and Spinal Biodynamics, as well as tutoring for biochemistry and
anatomy. Kenya has led several dissection seminars at Sherman, and will be
leading the Upper Cervical Academy Anatomy seminar on campus October 8-10.
Sherman has always had a special place in the hearts of Drs. Charles and
“After being in practice for three and a half years,” Dr. Kenya says, “it
is good to be back at Sherman to contribute to this great school that has
given us so much.” He is glad to join a passionate faculty that has students’
success at heart. He feels privileged to partner with such great teachers,
many of whom he feels indebted to for the knowledge.
Charles and Amilliah Kenya’s first visit to Sherman was the fall of 2001.
They had just had their first encounter with chiropractic, which gave them
a desire to know more. They found the philosophy, science and art of chiropractic
The couple went back to Kenya where they had been high school teachers for
12 years, but in the summer of 2002, they could not resist the desire to study
chiropractic. They moved to South Carolina from Kenya with their three children
and enrolled at Sherman in fall 2002. Sherman then became a home to their
family. In 2006, the Kenyas graduated and went into private practice in Greenville,
first with LaBelle Chiropractic and later Popwell Scota Spine Center, until
joining the Sherman faculty. Dr. Amilliah Kenya is director of the new student
tutoring program, as well as a member of the faculty.

Dr. Joe Boggs,
50th Member of R.O.A.R. for Sherman
Joe Boggs, D.C., ’07, always wanted a health care career. As an athlete dating
a woman from a chiropractic family, Joe fell in love with chiropractic. He worked
with his wife’s family and saw the benefits of chiropractic first hand.
“I’d love to see more enthusiastic health-conscious young people get into chiropractic
for the right reasons,” says Boggs. “I joined the ROAR program because I want to
do my part to make that happen.”
In addition to his practice, Boggs attends MLS Adjusting Seminars held by Arno
Burnier, D.C., ‘77, and even helps teach some of the classes. He also listens to
audio guides and enjoys reading to expand his knowledge of chiropractic. Learning
something new every day about having a better practice is one of his goals.
