Dr. Terry R. Yochum was honored by the Sigma Chi Fraternity as one of approximately 20 brothers to receive the distinguished “Significant Sig Award.” The honor was bestowed on Dr. Yochum on June 25, 2011 in Dallas, Texas at the annual meeting of the Grand Chapter of the International Sigma Chi Fraternity.
The award is given in recognition of contributions to mankind and Dr. Yochum is the first chiropractor in the history of Sigma Chi Fraternity to ever receive this prestigious award. There are over 300,000 Sigma Chi that have been inducted into the fraternity with only 1,600 brothers of Sigma Chi receiving the “Significant Sig Award”. In Dr. Yochum’s induction class was the famous movie star, “Brad Pitt” from the University of Missouri. Other famous people who have received the Significant Sig Award include David Letterman, John Wayne, Barry Goldwater, Tom Selleck, Mike Dikita and Bryan Griese to name just a few.
Over 3,000 people attended this hall of fame banquet. Dr. Yochum’s acceptance speech included the following quote:
“One of the best decisions I ever made was to become a chiropractic physician and eventually a radiologist. The natural approach to health and wellness embraced by the chiropractic profession has served me, my family and close friends to attain better health. Anyone struggling with a health issue, why not try chiropractic as an alternative? The profession has helped millions of patients worldwide.”
