Sherman College receives $1 million gift
Chiropractic scholar Reggie Gold, DC, and his wife, Irene Gold, DC, owner and leader of Irene Gold Associates, have made a $1 million gift to Sherman College. The gift is part of a $3 million pledge from the Golds and is the largest donation ever made to the college.
The Golds made arrangements for their first installment of $1 million in the form of a charitable gift annuity in early May.
Reggie Gold assisted in the startup of Sherman College, helped establish and served as first president of Pennsylvania College of Straight Chiropractic, taught philosophy at three chiropractic colleges (including Sherman, from 1973-76) and has lectured at most of the others.
He was instrumental in founding the Federation of Straight Chiropractors and Organizations (FSCO) and introduced the profession to a clearer philosophical understanding of chiropractic. He is a popular visiting scholar at Sherman College and has played a vital role in the college’s recruitment efforts.
Irene Gold began teaching board reviews on the Sherman campus in 1975 to help early Sherman College students who were preparing for the national board exam. Her program has grown significantly through the years and today serves students and graduates nationwide. After completing her DC studies from Columbia Institute of Chiropractic in New York., she joined her husband at Sherman College, where she served as academic dean.
