Bookstore Leads Drive for Puerto Rico Relief Efforts

Puerto Rico Relief Efforts

The Sherman College Bookstore collected hundreds of items to send to Puerto Rico as part of relief efforts following Hurricane Maria, a Category 4 hurricane that affected millions, including some of our own Sherman College community and their extended family and friends.

“I’m overwhelmed with the outpouring of generosity from our faculty, staff, students, and administration,” said Bookstore/Mailroom Manager Angela Thrift. “Sherman College prides itself on fostering a family atmosphere, so when Hurricane Maria ripped through Puerto Rico and so many of our Sherman family were affected, it seemed only natural that we, as a Sherman community, would want to help in some way. We are very pleased to be sending 17 boxes of items for the Hurricane Maria Relief Efforts on behalf of the Sherman College family.”

Items collected included diapers, baby wipes, insect repellent, band-aids, bandages, baby foods, canned goods, clothing, batteries, feminine supplies, toiletries, washcloths and more. For every 10 cans of food or baby food donated, individuals received a gift certificate to the bookstore for 15% off their next purchase.  The Bookstore shipped items out in early December to the Sovereign Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Puerto Rico, with thanks to Anatomy Lab Manager Dr. Edgardo Rivera, who offered us this connection. The lodge will serve as the college’s point of contact for distributing the items at no cost to those who need them.

Sixty Complete Doctor of Chiropractic Program at Sherman College

Graduation December 2017

Sixty students from around the world received the doctor of chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC, on Saturday, December 16, 2017. The commencement was a shared ceremony for December 2017 and March 2018 graduates.

Blair Ann Breslin of Michigan (December class) and William Alexander Stetzel of New Jersey (March class), recipients of the Milton W. Garfunkel Award, each presented a farewell address to 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.

Stetzel also received the B.J. Palmer Philosophy Distinction Award. This honor is given to outstanding students who exemplify the profound philosophical understanding necessary to translate the universal principles of life into the workable philosophy, science, and art which is chiropractic.

Stacey Elizabeth Rodsater of Illinois (December class) and Jordan Paul Thompson of North Carolina (March class) received the Academic Achievement Award. The Academic Achievement 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.

Cally Elizabeth Parks of Florida and Clara Patrice Sughrue of Virginia (December class) and James Edsel Craft II of Kentucky (March class) were presented with the Service Distinction Award. This distinction is not given at every graduation; rather it is given to students who stand out for their significant and distinguished service contributions to Sherman College and the local community throughout their course of study.

The Clinical Excellence Award was presented to Breslin (December class) and also to Jonathan Quinn Ward of North Carolina (March class) in recognition of their successful practices in the Health Center. This award is given to an intern in each class who has diligently worked to develop skills in the art, science, and philosophy of chiropractic, maintained an A average in the clinical program and exhibited superior overall clinical performance and professionalism.

The commencement address was given by Kevin Power, D.C., assistant professor of clinical sciences and Student Clinic faculty doctor at Sherman College. A 1981 Sherman graduate, Power was in private practice in Australia and the U.S. until he joined the college faculty in 2002. He is the youngest of five brothers, all doctors of chiropractic. Sherman College honored him with the Faculty Member of the Year award in both 2010 and 2015 in recognition of his innovation in student learning and his service in the classroom and the Chiropractic Health Center.

Jim Dubel, M.S., D.C., of Middletown, NJ, delivered the charge to the graduates. A 1980 Palmer College graduate, Dubel opened Health in Hand Chiropractic in New Jersey with his wife and chiropractic assistant, Barbara “Babs” Dubel, at his side. Ten years later, Dubel founded the New Beginning for a New Future Chiropractic Philosophy Weekend, known now as New Beginnings, which has become one of the premier chiropractic philosophy events in the nation, drawing hundreds of chiropractors as attendees and attracting the best of the best in chiropractic philosophy presenters. His daughter, Stephanie, Victoria Dubel, graduated with the December class.

The doctor of chiropractic program at Sherman College requires students to complete more than 4,700 hours (14 quarters) of classroom and laboratory study and also includes an internship in the college’s on-campus Chiropractic Health Center. To enter the D.C. program, students must have at least 90 semester hours of college-level courses, including courses in the sciences.

Sherman Family Celebrates at Annual Thanksgiving Lunch

Annual Thanksgiving Lunch

Chiropractic Student Government (CSG) and the Office of Student Affairs hosted the annual Thanksgiving lunch on November 21 for students, faculty, and staff. Sherman College is thankful for its students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends, and for the chiropractic profession! Check out the photo album on Facebook.

Everyone on campus enjoyed food from The Farmer’s Table (turkey and ham) and the Hub City Co-Op (all other items). CSG delivered extra food to the shelter at Spartanburg’s Safe Homes / Rape Crisis Coalition, which had just received two new families who were excited to share a Thanksgiving meal with others at the shelter.

“Sherman College prides itself on not only being the preeminent chiropractic college but also one that is student-focused and family oriented,” said CSG President Carolyn Oliveira. “Many students cannot travel home to spend Thanksgiving with their family, but Sherman gives us a home away from home. It’s comforting to sit with fellow students, faculty, and staff to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving meal. Sherman is family, and CSG, along with Student Affairs, is honored to put this lunch together for our students.”

The college’s annual Thanksgiving lunch is one of several traditions facilitated by CSG and Student Affairs. Although details for each event have been tweaked throughout the years to meet the needs of the campus, the spirit of community and unity for each event have stayed the same: creating a time for the entire campus community to come together, eat and unwind.

“Under the leadership of President Cordero, this is one of the ways we attempt to meet the college’s initiatives by showing our focus on student success,” said Assistant Dean of Student Affairs Michelle Schutrumpf of the event. “We acknowledge the sacrifices students make to obtain their education through Sherman College, and the stress they go through, both academic and personal. This lunch is a great opportunity for CSG and Student Affairs to provide for our students. We want students to be able to look back fondly at their time at Sherman and remember the family atmosphere that Sherman is known for.”

Kappa Chi Collects Hundreds for Toys for Tots

Kappa Chi Community Service and Outreach Club had a successful second year of its Toys for Tots drive on the Sherman College campus. The group collected 437 toys, an impressive increase over last year’s 190 toys.

Toys Collected

Students, faculty, and staff participated in the drive, with Kappa Chi and the Torque Release Technique Clubs donating their club funds toward getting additional toys. Several faculty members also championed the drive, including Drs. Laura Greene-Orndorff, Dan Becker, and Princess Porter-Fowler.

In addition, students hosted a bowling event with donations from local businesses including R.J. Rockers, La Paz, the Sherman College Bookstore, Woodfin Ridge, Pi Kappa Chi Fraternity, The Henhouse, Primrose Boutique, Dr. Scott Baker, Charles Thomas Tucker LMT, and Palmetto Twist. Donated items and gift certificates helped raise additional money for toys.

Bob Winters, an eighth-quarter student and an officer in the Kappa Chi Community Service and Outreach Club, said the drive is a great community service event that allows students to focus on helping others less fortunate in the local area. “I think most people find it fun,” he said. “You go shopping and see a toy you totally forgot even existed, and you remember how much fun you had playing with that toy. So you buy it and hope it’ll bring another just as much fun.”

Kappa Chi Collects Toys

Winters was excited to see the campus enthusiasm this year. “I love how much we have expanded on this year with greater faculty involvement, students, local business, and school clubs,” he explained.

Dr. Greene-Orndorff, whose entire eighth-quarter class brought donations in one day, agreed. “These students really touched my heart,” she said. “I’m so impressed that students take time to make life a little happier for those less fortunate. What wonderful, caring, compassionate doctors [are] coming your way, world!”

These seven students will each receive a $500 tuition credit for the winter 2018 quarter: Kathleen Costello, Jimmy Craft, Taylor Fortune, Russell Goff, Hui Zhen Lim, Christian Ortiz and Teena Rowe. The funding for these awards comes from money raised through sponsorships for Sherman Pride Day, which was held on October 12.

To be considered for the Pride Awards, students were asked to show how they share or exemplify Sherman Pride in their lives, using words, photos or videos. They were encouraged to be simple, direct and heartfelt in their submissions, which could show Sherman Pride in the local community; in students’ hometowns; as interns in the on-campus Chiropractic Health Center; via essay, poem or song; or however best expressed their school spirit. The winners submitted photos, presentations, videos, poems, and even a song performance.

Alumni Association First Vice President Jaime Browning, D.C., ’09, was happy to see a strong turnout of applicants sharing their love for the college. “My life was changed and molded by my time at Sherman,” she said. “It is humbling to see how Sherman continues to do such in the lives of our future chiropractors.”

School Pride Awards

Fortune, who is in the fifth quarter, shared just how far her Sherman Pride has taken her.

Goff, a sixth quarter student, drew a comparison to the upcoming holiday season with the concepts of gifts and service. “Living life through a posture of service has given me a great appreciation of every person I meet,” he said in his essay.

School Pride Awards

Lim, a second-quarter student, submitted a poem focusing on the college’s collection of epigrams and their importance to her and the profession. Her favorite is “This is the place / Now is the time / Let’s Go!”

School Pride Awards

Ortiz, a 10th quarter student, and Ambassador submitted a video/slideshow of how he has shared his Sherman Pride with others. “We found a way to spread the word about Sherman around the world by showing our Sherman Pride everywhere we go,” he said.
