Spartanburg Chamber Honors Sherman College with Landscape Beautification Award

Maintenance Crew
Bill Johnson, Monte Guffey, John Marro, Luke Chomic, Kenneth Gilbert

Sherman College recently received a 2011 Landscape Beautification Award from the Spartanburg Chamber of Commerce. This program offers a unique opportunity for area businesses to have their landscapes evaluated and recognized; the evaluation is performed by members of the Spartanburg Men’s Garden Club. It was the first year the college entered.

The panel of judges considered the following components: foundation plantings, lawns, perimeter and other plantings, trees. Points were assigned according to categories of design (20), execution (20), maintenance (30) and overall  impression (20), for a total score of 100. Sherman received a 95 and was thereby recognized with an Honorable Mention Award.

Comments on the judging sheet indicated that the “overall campus landscaping [is] very well done and well maintained” and the areas near buildings made a “very good impression.”

Vice President for Business and Finance Tim Revels praised the college’s small but dedicated groundskeeping crew. “Monte Guffey and Luke Chomic have made tremendous efforts to keep the college beautiful,” he said. “They are excellent at maintaining all of the grounds, mulching hundreds of trees and shrubs and just keeping the campus looking great in general.  They take ownership in the grounds and how they look. We are blessed with a great crew.”

As far as the variety of the landscape, Revels said the college makes conscientious decisions when planning landscaping projects. “As we have constructed each element of campus – the Gordon and Helen Brown Student Plaza, Olsen Building, Brown House, memorial trees, parking lots and more – we have made efforts to emphasize the attractiveness, design and variety of the landscape,” he said.

“We made a conscious effort to assure there are many varieties of trees, plants and flowers so that different ones will bloom at various times throughout the year. In fact, during the early days of the campus’ history," Revels said, "Dr. Tony Duke placed many rare varieties of trees throughout the campus after the Scallon Building was built." The impact of his work and that of others was recognized with this award.

Welcoming Future Students to Campus

Career Day 2011, held in conjunction with Lyceum, was a busy weekend for the Enrollment Services Team! We welcomed more than 40 prospective students and their families to campus for a weekend full of great activities.

We started the weekend early on Thursday with a meet and greet featuring a Q&A session from Sherman grads Drs. Josh and Benna Click and Sherman’s own New Beginnings Club. Friday was a great day for students to meet with admission and financial aid, network with alumni, attend seminars and explore Spartanburg. Capping off a busy day was hypnotist Gabriel Holmes and the rockin’ sounds of The Vitalistics under the tents. 


Trustee Dr. Liam Schubel speaks to Career Day guests

Saturday was the culmination of the weekend for our visitors: Career Day. Students participated in a mock adjusting class, toured campus and met with current students too! They were also treated to a guest speaker at lunch as Sherman trustee Dr. Liam Schubel shared his passion for chiropractic.

The Enrollment Services Team will be hosting Shadow an Intern Day this Thursday, July 28, from 11-4:30. This event is designed to show prospective students what a typical day is like for our interns. Prospective students will chat with students and faculty during lunch before being paired with an intern for the afternoon. During this time, prospective students will observe patient visits, attend classes and get a tour of campus. 

The Enrollment Services Office hosts on-campus events throughout the year and we would love for you to share these upcoming dates with patients in your office who are considering a career in chiropractic.

Here are a few other events you can share with prospective students:

New Patient Initiatives
for Alumni

A collaborative project between Sherman College and Hearst media services will bring new patients to your practice and bring your marketing efforts to the new millennium.

Chiropractors everywhere have realized that word of mouth is still one of the best ways to advertise. The new word of mouth "social media" is a logical next step of introducing hundreds of thousands to the benefits of chiropractic. Together we will accomplish this.

Hearst media services is helping doctors of chiropractic to:

  • be found online
  • connect with and educate current patients
  • use connections to create new referrals
  • link Sherman and your clinic to thousands of potential patients online 

Hearst media services can create or enhance your internet presence and manage your social media updates or give you all the tools to manage this on your own.

Sherman will deliver content to help you manage your weekly updates. We are preparing informative articles and success stories from satisfied patients to post on your blog, clinic’s Facebook page, Twitter, and other social networks, automatically updated for you if you choose.

Hearst media services has developed several options that you may choose, all at very affordable price points.

The following pages show you several of our alumni who already partner with Hearst media services, the several pieces included in the packages and the pricing options.

If you are interested in this service or just want more details about this initiative, please contact our Hearst consultants: Freddy Ruehl at or 864-316-0078 or DeAnna Fulco at or 616-890-6140.
