Meet Diane Schroeder!

Diane Schroeder

Dr. Diane Schroeder

I think I’ve always been aware of what D.D. and B.J. Palmer termed “universal intelligence.”  And somehow I understood the concept of “innate intelligence” as well. Imagine the wonder and excitement I felt when I came to understand that the purpose/goal of chiropractic is to remove the interference that occurs in the nervous system due to subluxations.

Imagine the thrill I felt when I learned that I could be taught to correct vertebral subluxations and thus participate in the healing and maintenance of the body in a most natural way! To connect with Sherman College and this concept was what I had been searching for!

And so, here I am! Truly fulfilling my dream. It’s a large and sometimes daunting task but never, ever, have I looked back and thought there was another path for me.

I am what some would call a “non-traditional student.” Along with helping my husband build an architectural practice in New England, I have also had a previous career of teaching Montessori preschool. Fondly I remember the many important life lessons learned and the many children taught and raised.

Yet, I will always say that my most important job has been as a mother. Proudly I can say that I have one son attending Sherman along with me, one son pursuing his Bachelor of Science degree in physics in Maine and a young daughter in 4th grade here in Spartanburg. My husband remains in Boston working as an architect, building schools.

Chiropractic is not just a profession. It is an art, science and philosophy. Chiropractic is a lifestyle, one that is good for you and me!

Thirty students from across the country received the doctor of chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC, on Saturday, December 18, 2010. The commencement was a shared ceremony for both December 2010 and March 2011 graduates.

Michael J.B. Myers of Pennsylvania and Michael Thomas Rykse of Michigan, recipients of the Milton W. Garfunkel Award for the December and March classes, respectively, presented farewell addresses to their classmates. The Garfunkel Award is the highest award given at graduation. Students receiving this honor must have a grade point average of 3.5 or above, and in addition, best exemplify those qualities Sherman College would like to inculcate in all of its graduates: love of the profession, an understanding of the philosophy, willingness to share, and service to the college and community.

The Academic Achievement Award was presented to Myers for the December class and Michael Donald Knecht of Michigan for the March 2011 class. This award is given to the individual in each graduating class who maintains the highest grade point average throughout his or her studies at Sherman College.

The Service Distinction Award was presented to Katy M. Hughes of Pennsylvania. This distinction is not awarded at every graduation; rather it is given to special students who stand out for their significant and distinguished service contributions to Sherman College throughout their course of study.

Myers received the Clinical Excellence Award for the December class, along with Taylor Jacob Van Quaethem of Washington, for the March class. This award is given to the intern in each class who has established a successful practice in the Health Center and has diligently worked to develop his/her skills in the art, science and philosophy of chiropractic.

Meghan Ruth Luttrell Palmer of Tennessee received the B.J. Palmer Philosophy Distinction Award, which is given in recognition of the outstanding student who has “that something” that exemplifies the profound philosophical understanding necessary to translate the universal principles of life into the workable philosophy, science and art which is chiropractic.

The commencement address was given by John Hilpisch, D.C., of Lake Elmo, Minnesota. Hilpisch is chair of the Sherman College Board of Trustees and is well-known for his love and teaching of upper cervical chiropractic and the practice of the Blair technique. He was named Blair Chiropractor of the Year in 2005 and has been named Regent of the Year by Sherman College two years in a row, 2009 and 2010. His daughter Frances Culbertson was among the graduates.

R. L. Luttrell, D.C., delivered the charge to the graduates. Luttrell is a chiropractor who has run successful chiropractic practices in several states, including Kentucky, Florida, Michigan and most recently in Tennessee. He has been active as a member and leader in community organizations such as Rotary and Lions Clubs, Boy Scouts, Masons, school boards and town councils. His youngest daughter, Meghan Luttrell Palmer, was among the graduates and the recipient of the B.J. Palmer Philosophy Distinction Award.

The doctor of chiropractic program at Sherman College requires students to complete more than 4,800 hours (14 quarters) of classroom and laboratory study and also includes an internship in the college’s Chiropractic Health Center. To enter the program, students must have at 90 semester hours of college-level courses, including courses in the sciences.

Sociologist and Researcher Dr. Yvonne Villanueva-Russell Receives Layperson of the Year Award

Villanueva-russell-yvonne Yvonne Villanueva-Russell, Ph.D., was recently named Layperson of the Year by Sherman College of Chiropractic in appreciation of her outstanding contributions, time and commitment to the chiropractic profession, the public and the college. The award was presented May 28 in Spartanburg, SC, as part of the college’s annual homecoming program.

The Lay Person of the Year Award is given to non-chiropractors who have contributed to the advancement of Sherman College and the chiropractic profession in a significant and noteworthy manner. Dr. Villanueva-Russell, an associate professor and department head at Texas A&M University-Commerce, has focused her research on the professionalization of alternative medicine and the politics of science. She is essentially interested in the dilemma within chiropractic that seeks to gain legitimacy in mainstream medicine while striving to maintain its philosophical roots. Her research has analyzed the role of science, the media and professional identity in this process.

Dr. Villanueva-Russell has been the recipient of the Paul W. Barrus Distinguished Faculty Award for Teaching (2004) and was named Honors Professor of the Year (2005) both at Texas A&M University-Commerce. She holds a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Missouri-Columbia, where she completed a dissertation titled, “On the Margins of the System of Professions: Professionalism and Entrepreneurialism in As Forces Upon and Within Chiropractic.” Dr. Villanueva-Russell completed a National Institutes of Health Predoctoral Fellowship at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. She holds M.A. and B.A. degrees in sociology from Western Illinois University.

She has authored several publications including:  “Chiropractors as Folk Devils: Published and Unpublished Coverage of a Moral Panic;” “An Ideal-Typical Development of Chiropractic, 1895-1961: Pursuing Professional Ends Through Entrepreneurial Means;” “Early Advertising and Practice Building in Chiropractic: 1920-1950;”  “Evidence-Based Medicine and Its Implications for the Profession of Chiropractic;” and “The AMA versus Chiropractic: Themes of Opposition From 1963 to 1974.” 

Sherman College named its 2010 award recipients May 27-29 as part of its Lyceum, an annual continuing education and homecoming event which is attended by hundreds of chiropractors throughout the U.S. and internationally. Lyceum is held on the college’s campus in Spartanburg, SC, and involves three days of seminars, special events and other programs.

Upper Cervical Health Centers Co-Founder Ray Drury Receives Service to the Profession Award

He opened his first Upper Cervical practice in a small town in North Carolina. In less than a year, Dr. Drury opened his second office. He since has opened and successfully operated three more Upper Cervical practices during his 14 years in business.

Dr. Drury has spent years developing reproducible, turnkey systems to build his Upper Cervical practices to some of the busiest, most profitable in the world. He has been teaching Upper Cervical doctors how to use these same systems to build high volume, low stress practices since 1998, and he now works full-time coaching doctors practicing all over the world, based on the same systems he developed for his own successful offices.

Dr. Drury is the co-founder and CEO of Upper Cervical Health Centers (UCHC), a network of chiropractic offices that focus on providing upper cervical chiropractic care across the United States and Italy. The company is 46 offices strong and growing. He teaches seminars on Upper Cervical practice building at a variety of different colleges and schools, is a sought after speaker at conferences and seminars, and helps organize UCHC seminars and Boot Camps.

Sherman College named its 2010 award recipients May 27-29 as part of its Lyceum, an annual continuing education and homecoming event which is attended by hundreds of chiropractors throughout the U.S. and internationally.
