Baze Honored with Distinguished Service Award from Sherman College

Distinguished Service Award Winner

Randy Baze, D.C., ’83, of Renton, WA, recently received the Distinguished Service Award from Sherman College of Chiropractic in appreciation of his contributions, time and commitment to growing the chiropractic profession. The Distinguished Service Award is given to a Sherman graduate who has distinguished himself for service to their community, the profession and/or Sherman College.


A 1983 graduate of Sherman College, Baze grew up in a horse racing family in Washington State, and after a positive experience as a chiropractic patient, he learned that animals could also benefit from care and was inspired to change his career path from pre-med to chiropractic. Following his graduation from Sherman College, he found a niche that brings together his love of animals and his desire to help people through chiropractic.  


After being featured in his local newspaper for helping a local resident’s dog, his office, Baze Chiropractic in Renton, WA, quickly grew to include, at times, up to 100 animal visits each week. He set up a donation system for his patients’ animal visits and continues to send these funds monthly as a donation to Sherman College. To date, these donations exceed $80,000.


Baze is a member of the Washington State Chiropractic Association and the World Chiropractic Alliance. In 1983 he was named Sherman Regent of the Year. Then, in 1998, he was named to the Chiropractic Knights of the Round Table, in 2002 received the Chiropractic Sentinel Award and the Washington State Chiropractic Pioneer Award. He has become one of the leading experts on animal chiropractic, providing chiropractic care to animals on a regular basis as well as lecturing extensively on the subject to the profession. His wife, Dawn, works with him at Baze Chiropractic as a chiropractic assistant.


Sherman College honored alumni, chiropractors, and supporters during its 48th Lyceum, a homecoming and continuing education event attended by hundreds of chiropractors and students throughout the U.S. and internationally. Lyceum is held each year and involves three days of seminars, special events and other programs. More than 600 people participated this year.
