Paralyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) is pleased to announce Sherman Gillums Jr. as acting associate executive director of its Veterans Benefits Department. Gillums first became involved with Paralyzed Veterans through its innovative Vocational Rehabilitation Program, which empowers veterans with the tools they need to get good jobs. Gillums’ career has come full circle, as he now heads the department that helped him reenter the job market post injury.

Gillums, a paralyzed veteran, began his career with Paralyzed Veterans as a national service officer in San Diego, where he developed VA benefits claims and clinical appeals for veterans and families in the area. He later became involved with the local Paralyzed Veterans chapter, and went on to become the chapter’s president. He also served on Paralyzed Veterans of America’s National Field Advisory Committee. After earning a master’s degree in global leadership from the University of San Diego, he returned to the VA benefits claims arena as a Paralyzed Veterans appellate representative at the Board of Veterans’ Appeals in Washington, DC, before accepting the position as acting associate executive director of veterans benefits.
