President Cordero Presents Vision for Sherman College
In the first all-campus assembly of 2013, Dr. Cordero introduced himself to students, faculty and staff and shared his chiropractic story: how a chiropractor helped his son with asthma and, in turn, inspired the grateful father to his own career path in the profession. Cordero then explained his vision for Sherman College to be the preeminent chiropractic school in the world. He outlined a number of steps to increase the visibility of the college and multiply its impact.
Dr. Cordero was the featured speaker on the Sherman connect call for January 21, and also shared his vision with that audience. Listen to his vision at http://www.sherman.edu/MP3/13-01-21-cordero.mp3
Winter 2013 Class Continues Sherman’s Growth
The college recently welcomed 32 new DCs2B to campus, further increasing enrollment and exceeding the quarterly recruiting goal by 14 percent.
“In the two years I have been with the college, I have seen the application pool grow in quantity and quality,” says Vice President for Enrollment Services Kelley Jones Ashcraft. “The latest class is particularly well-prepared and diverse. We look forward to their contributions to the student body and the profession.”

Jillian Kersh, D.C., has been named director of the Reach Out and Recruit (ROAR) program. Following graduation from Sherman in 2009, Dr. Kersh entered private practice with fellow Sherman alumnus Bryn (Holm) Gillow, D.C., in Brodheadsville, PA.
While she absolutely loves practicing, Dr. Kersh feels called to help foster the growth of the chiropractic profession in a slightly different capacity by working to recruit more students through D.C. referrals and participation in recruiting events across the country.

“This work is another good example of collaboration between a teaching faculty member and research department personnel,” says Dr. George Luo, director of research. “We love to see faculty working together to advance our college.”
Committed to expanding Sherman College’s reach and influence, new president Dr. Edwin Cordero has a busy agenda just a few weeks after taking office at the college, with trips to Puerto Rico (recruiting) and Atlanta (Dynamic Essentials Seminar) in January and February 2013.
Dr. Cordero, along with Miguel Hastings, the college’s new director of Hispanic and presidential initiatives, traveled to the island of Puerto Rico January 23-27. They met with administrators of the University of Puerto Rico and Sagrado Corazon (Sacred Heart) at their respective campuses, giving chiropractic presentations and sharing enrollment information with students at both schools.
Saturday evening, January 26, Dr. Cordero and Mr. Hastings hosted about 35 prospective students and parents, as well as local chiropractors, during a dinner at the Metropol Restaurant in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico. Dr. Cordero and Mr. Hastings, along with the local D.C.s in attendance, presented information about Sherman College and chiropractic during the dinner.
If you know a chiropractor or a student prospect in Puerto Rico who may have an interest in Sherman’s initiatives there, please contact email@example.com , 800-849-8771, ext. 226, or 404-909-7999.
Next, Dr. Cordero and Mr. Hastings, joined by other college administrators, will travel to Dynamic Essentials (“DE,” as it is commonly called) in Atlanta from January 31-February 3; Dr. Cordero has been a frequent platform speaker at DE events. The event is free to students; if you are interested, please contact DE directly at 770-438-9949, or see Dr. Edwin Cordero or Miguel Hastings on campus for more information.

What better time of year than winter to make a snoball for Sherman College? What is a snoball? Snoballs are pledges to a non-profit when a specific event happens-- a team scores, someone new likes your Facebook page, you gain a follower on Twitter, you check in at a specific place on Foursquare, or any event you designate. The pledge is then tracked by Snoball.com, a social fundraising platform that allows automated or controlled donations known as “snoballs.”
Our featured snoball this month was created by Dr. Liam Schübel, a member of the Sherman Board of Trustees.
"Snoball is a fun way to make every success in your office count twice!" says Schübel. His snoball is chiropractic specific and challenges D.C.s to pledge a donation to Sherman College for each new patient in the office.
When you pledge with a snoball, your donations accrue when a specific event happens. By joining Schübel’s snoball mentioned above, you will pledge to Sherman College of Chiropractic when you see a new patient.
How much? You decide.
Please know that you will always have control over the donations. You can set a monthly cap on each snoball you create or join; Snoball emails you three days before billing; and you always have the opportunity to remove pledges before being billed.
“I’ve been using Snoball for about a year now,” says Marggi Roldan, Director of Development and Alumni Relations at Sherman. “My snoball for Sherman tied in to the Pittsburgh Steelers scoring a touchdown and was automatically tracked by Snoball. It made watching the games more fun to know that a good game could generate lots of donations for Sherman.”
Snoballs are created for giving and sharing via social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, etc. Those who start or join a snoball can quickly and easily share them across their social networks, and invite others to join in.

The Sherman Pride is getting ready for its second season. Currently the team is practicing Thursday nights from 5:30-7 p.m. on our home pitch.
We will play sevens rugby in the upcoming summer season. Sevens is a variant of rugby union in which teams are made up of seven players, instead of the usual 15, with shorter matches.
The game is popular at all levels, with amateur and club tournaments generally held in the summer months. Sevens is one of the most well-distributed forms of rugby, popular in parts of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas, and especially in the South Pacific.
Sevens is now recognized as an Olympic sport and will make its debut in the 2016 Summer Olympics.
If you are interested in joining the team, contact Coach Adam Ashcraft at email@example.com
Thanks in part to donations from the Alumni Association, the lower level of the Chiropractic Health Center has a new look underfoot.
The tweedy blue carpeting gives patients, staff and interns a nicer and more professional working environment.
Enhancing the facilities at Sherman helps support our goal of attracting patients and bringing quality chiropractic care to the community.
Please share these dates with prospective students. Your referrals are among our best sources of excellent students.
