Roanoke, VA- January 24, 2011— Foot Levelers presented Dr. Gerard W. Clum, the first president of Life Chiropractic College West, with the Golden Achievement of Chiropractic Education Award. Approximately 20 years ago, Foot Levelers created golden achievement awards for a handful of individuals that have made significant impacts to better the chiropractic profession.
“This achievement award is a once-in-a-lifetime recognition of exceptional contribution and dedication to different aspects of the chiropractic profession ,” said Kent S. Greenawalt, President and CEO of Foot Levelers. “Chiropractic is part of Dr. Clum’s DNA--live, eat, breath, sleep, do, achieve for this fine profession.”
Dr. Clum’s 30 years serving Life Chiropractic College has placed him among the most senior of chiropractic college administrators in the world. His noteworthy service has consisted of:
President of the World Federation of Chiropractic
President of the Association of Chiropractic Colleges
Board member of the International Chiropractors Association for 20 years
Executive committee member of the Foundation of Chiropractic Progress
Dr. Clum’s recent retirement as president of the College allows him to pursue other areas of interest and need in the chiropractic field. He included in his acceptance of the award that he is “retiring from a position, not the profession.”
The same company that produces the Oscars® made the award. It stands about 18 inches high and plated with 24K gold. “The award is 24K plated---and although it is very valuable, it is incomparable to the priceless achievements of a chiropractic champion such as Dr. Clum,” said Greenawalt.
