July 29, 2012 — At the quarterly board meeting July 19, 2012, Deborah Progrelis, DC, was elected as chairperson of the Board of Trustees for Life University. Pogrelis has served in various roles on the board of trustees since 2009. Pogrelis takes over for Shawn Ferguson, DC, who served as chairperson since 2010.
On taking over as chairperson, Pogrelis says, “I look forward to leading the board of trustees as we continue to work with the administration to fulfill the mission and goals of Life University. In addition to housing the largest chiropractic college in the world, the quality and growth of our undergraduate and Master’s programs has catapulted Life University into being a premier institution of natural heath science education. As such, we have responsibility to produce graduates who are skilled practitioners and transformational leaders in an increasingly diverse, global, and dynamic world.”
