Sly & The Family Stone weren’t singing the praises of the Meckle family in 1971 when they recorded their number one hit, but they could have been. Earlier this year in March, Dr. Joseph Meckle, D.C., who has had a chiropractic practice here in Lyons for nearly thirty years, had the honor of watching his two daughters, Carly and Jenny, graduate from the Palmer Chiropractic College in Florida.
The young women, both graduates of Lyons High School (Carly in 2002, and Jenny in 2005) received their Bachelor of Science Degrees from Colorado State University in Fort Collins in 2009.
Carly, a Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force at the time, missed that ceremony due to her third deployment to Iraq, but she was present for this one. Also present for the ceremony were the sisters’ brother, Dr. Josh Meckle, D.C., their mother, Dr. Sandra Conard, D.C., (of Custer, SD), and their father, the afore mentioned Dr. Joseph Meckle, D.C. You see where we’re going with this?
That’s right, five Chiropractors in one family. Not only that, but all five are graduates of Palmer Chiropractic College (Josh received his degree in 2011). The President of the school was so impressed; he invited the entire family up on stage during the diploma presentation ceremonies to give out the diplomas to the newest members of the “Meckle Chiropractic Team.” Talk about a well-adjusted family!
Congratulations to Drs. Carly and Jenny Meckle, D.C., and a big “atta boy” to Dr. Joe.
