Dr. Perry RushDr. Perry Rush Retires

After more than three decades as a full-time faculty member, Sherman Associate Professor Perry O. Rush, D.C., has retired at the end of spring quarter. A 1976 "pioneer" Sherman graduate, Rush joined the college in 1980 as a faculty member and has dedicated his many years at the college to teaching upper cervical courses, particularly in the Blair technique.

"After much consideration, Vicki and I have decided that it is time for us to begin a new chapter," Rush said in his announcement to campus. “The decision to leave has not been easy. We will miss our Sherman family but look forward to that new chapter. I will still be close by putting my energy into my practice and supporting my career-long interest in the upper cervical subluxation and the Blair work for which I was recruited many years ago. What a great thing to have been associated with so many good people all these years."

adapted from Belle Magazine of Spartanburg

Life is good for Chris Bedenbaugh, as is clear from his smile. His practice with his uncle, James Bedenbaugh, D.C., '76, in Gaffney, SC, is going well, and he and his wife are enjoying life with their 10-month-old daughter, Madysen.

BedenbaughHis wife, Kimberly, entered Chris in Belle magazine's Hunky Husband Contest. She didn't even tell him about it until he made the top three semi-finalists.

After the photo shoot, Bedenbaugh said this would be the end of his modeling career, as he already has a job that he loves, being a chiropractor.

"I quit my job at an engineering firm," Bedenbaugh told Alison Storm of Belle Magazine. "I was tired of people telling me what to do. Now I get to do something I really enjoy, and I'm good at what I do."

Brian Dooley - Dr. SchwartzbauerStudents support troops in Afghanistan

Sherman grad Brian Dooley, D.C., ’05, recently called on his alma mater for some help on a patriotic project for a troop in Afghanistan. Dooley’s brother, Command Sergeant Major Scott Dooley, a military police officer currently serving in Afghanistan, asked him to send sports equipment that the troops could share with kids in Afghanistan.

Dooley said his brother and the other soldiers are looking for ways to connect with the youth of Afghanistan by giving them something beneficial to occupy their time. “Sports are a great outlet and foster many desirable qualities like teamwork, camaraderie and working toward a common goal,” he said.

Sherman students took Dooley up on his request, donating sports equipment for the troops and children. President Jon Schwartzbauer, D.C., said the college was honored to help Dooley’s efforts. “We’re proud to help serve and honor the men and women who give so much for our country,” he said. “Service to humanity is a key part of our mission at Sherman College, and this was an excellent opportunity for us to help serve others.”
