SCU celebrated the 100th anniversary of the founding of the
Los Angeles College of Chiropractic during its Centennial Gala held at
the Marriott Hotel in Anaheim, CA on August 27. The festivities were part of the
Centennial Extravaganza, which took place during the same weekend. The Extravaganza is SCU’s annual event,
which offers multiple tracks of Continuing Education courses for both
doctors of chiropractic and licensed acupuncturists.
During the weekend Dr. John Scaringe, SCU President, was
presented with a plaque in recognition of the LACC Centennial from the
Association for the History of Chiropractic. The presentation was made by
Dr. Claire Johnson and Dr. Bart Green, former SCU faculty members, who
have also served on the Board of the AHC.
An Alumni Reception was held on Friday evening that
provided an opportunity for alumni and friends of SCU to mingle and get
reacquainted. The SCU Alumni Association also presented Distinguished
Alumnus Awards to Dr. Eric Hurwitz and Dr. Joseph Horrigan, both from the
class of 1998. The spring 1998
graduating class also won the award for having the most members in
The crowd was especially excited to see a photographic
display where LACC's 100 year history was highlighted. Dr. Reed B.
Phillips, SCU President Emeritus, served as the key note speaker and
delighted the crowd with antidotes of his illustrious career. In
attendance were many alumni, former faculty members and friends of SCU.
The SCU Alumni Association presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to
three deserving recipients: Drs. Howard Essegian (1948), Chang-Yu John
Hsieh (1988) and Reed B. Phillips.
If you missed the Centennial celebration don’t worry we’ll
have another in 2012. You can click here to view some
