DC2B Ashley LiewLiew Competes In Virginia Beach

Sherman student and DC2B Ashley Liew participated in the Virginia Beach Rock and Roll Half Marathon, August 31, 2014, coming in 10th from a field of 7809 finishers despite high heat and humidity. He achieved a 10-mile personal best at 57m10s.

"My finishing time was not what I was rooting for," Liew says, "but I am extremely happy with my 10th placing. Overall I was moving smoothly, thanks to good conditioning and regular chiropractic checks." 

Liew chose this race as a "tune-up" race before the Chicago Marathon on October 12. In the following three weeks, he attended an  International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA)  seminar, took National Board of Chiropractic Exams (NBCE), and then took final exams for the quarter. He hopes to bring back good news from the Chicago Marathon next week.

Money JarThe Beauty of Giving to an Endowment by Director of Development and Alumni Relations Marggi Roldan

If you’re a saver or someone who plans for a rainy day, you’ll love the idea of donating to one of Sherman’s Endowment Funds.

Sherman’s endowments are established with the future in mind. They are protected funds set aside with a specific purpose for the future and remain forever.

That’s right, forever; only the net earnings or a portion of them are spent to fulfill the purpose of the fund. Once established, donors with these interests can add their gifts to build the principal investment of an endowment which in turn produces more earnings or available funds to be used by the college.

A donation to any of Sherman’s endowed funds is a gift that truly keeps on giving. Here are the endowed funds you can support at Sherman College:

Berkowitz Memorial Scholarship, established by Sherman graduate Len Mazza, D.C., to honor his mentor Bob Berkowitz and the memory of Berkowitz’s parents Sandra and Samuel who instilled in their son an ethic of community service; it provides scholarships to students with similar characteristics.

Ted Hartley Memorial Scholarship, established by Sherman graduate John Degenhart, D.C., to honor the memory of former classmate and Florida chiropractor Ted Hartley.

C.G. Haynes Scholarship, established from an estate gift of a patient in Washington state, to honor his chiropractor, C.G. Haynes, an early supporter of the college. Recipients are students from Washington state and/or career changers.

General Endowment Fund, established to provide support to the overall chiropractic program at the college.

Health Center Equipment Fund, established to provide funds to purchase chiropractic equipment such as tables and instrumentation or maintain equipment in good working condition. 

Michigan Chiropractic Foundation Scholarship Fund, established this year to provide scholarships to Sherman students from Michigan who plan to return to Michigan to practice chiropractic.

John Yglesias Scholarship Fund, established by the estate of a chiropractic patient to support the scholarship needs of the college.
