After the presidential investiture of Dr. Edwin Cordero was over, and after Sherman Lyceum 2013 was complete, it was time for people to let down their hair and celebrate. In honor of the founding decade of Sherman College of Chiropractic, on Saturday night a 1970s themed banquet was held at the downtown Spartanburg Marriott on Church Street. Here’s a set of photos I took while at that event.

From left to right we have Drs. Peter Kevorkian, Tom Gelardi, and Liam Schubel. Dr. Tom Gelardi is the founder of Sherman Chiropractic College, and Drs. Peter Kevorkian and Liam Schubel are on the Board of Trustees. These are visionary chiropractors, and it’s great to see they can have some fun.

Debbie and Dr. Ed CorderoCool Cats – Debbie and Dr. Ed Cordero

Speaking of having some fun, this photo features the coolest cats on the planet (especially on Planet Chiropractic), Debbie Cordero and Sherman President Dr. Ed Cordero. These two have amazing energy and they are a blast to hang out with, I’m already looking forward to Lyceum 2014.

Susan Schofield - Fred Schofield - Irene Gold

Here’s three people that have had a profound impact on my life. From left to right we have┬áSusan Schofield, Dr. Fred Schofield, and Irene Gold. This photo pretty much sums up success in chiropractic. Irene Gold can teach you everything there is to know about passing national boards (she’s helped thousands of chiropractors). Susan Schofield can teach you about running a successful high volume love-centered chiropractic office (she’s also helped thousands of chiropractors). Dr. Fred can teach you to calm that monkey mind of yours and remain focused on serving patients (he has helped thousands of chiropractors do so).

When I was a chiropractic student sitting in Los Angeles traffic in the 1990s, I used to listen to cassette tapes (remember those?) of Dr. Christopher Kent and Dr. Patrick Gentempo doing interviews with chiropractors from around the world. I remember Dr. Kent once talking about how he had long hair when he attended Palmer College of Chiropractic and that he was quite the rebel. After taking this photo I thought this is probably what Dr. Kent looked like when he went to chiropractic college. Groovy!

I don’t know how popular Viking horns were in the 1970s, but along with the large black wigs (must have been a sale in downtown Spartenburg), I saw them several times at the party. In case you are wondering, people really had a lot of fun (that should be obvious from the pics). Having attended many chiropractic conferences throughout the years I have found events like this are great for freeing the mind and letting go into the future.

Drs. Patti Giuliano and Peter KevorkianDrs. Patti Giuliano and Peter Kevorkian

Drs. Patti Giuliano and Peter Kevorkian are two amazing people. I believe I first met them at a New Beginnings in New Jersey many years ago. They are full of life and always a pleasure to be around. Their energy is magnetic. I took a photo earlier in the day of Patti during the Lunch on the Lawn event, along with a group of women that gathered for┬áthe League of Chiropractic Women (LCW). Fun wasn’t only had at the banquet, it was 4 days of fun during my time in South Carolina.

I didn’t get the names of these 3 ladies but they looked fabulous. Such great enthusiasm from students, faculty, administrators, board members, and the president. I’m thankful I was invited to attend.
