Wisdom And Experiences From A Life Well Lived Are Shared In Titus
The story of Dr. Titus Plomaritis reads like a pitch for a Hollywood movie. The third of seven children born to Greek immigrants in Lowell, Mass., during the Great Depression, Plomaritis had to work on a chicken farm at age 12 to help support his family. From there, through pure gut determination and nose to the grindstone focus, he went on to make his mark on the football fields of his high school and college alma maters; serve his country as a US Army paratrooper; excel in the world of business; and become a highly respected doctor whose insight was sought out by President Jimmy Carter. From start to finish, this is a remarkable story of achieving the American dream. This is the story of Titus. And every word of it is true.
Titus is a nostalgia-filled autobiography packed cover to cover with remarkable memories and 250 photos — many from the White House — that support the motivational stories throughout the memoir. Plomaritis and Sam Weisberg, who was associated with the Lowell Sun for 60 years as a writer, librarian and Sunday sports editor, collaborated to write Titus. Winner of the Pete Delohery Award for Best Sports Book in the 2018 Shelf Unbound Indie Book Competition, Titus is an inspirational tale for young and old and everyone in between.
Author Titus Plomaritis was born in 1929 and became a living legend in Lowell, Mass., after leading the Lowell High School football team to its first undefeated season. Plomaritis would later play four seasons at Boston University. He served as a US Army paratrooper during the early post World War II occupation of Japan. He earned a doctor of chiropractic degree from the Chiropractic Institute of New York in 1957 and a master of science in nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, Conn., in 1979. Plomaritis was a fulltime practicing chiropractor for over forty years.
He established the Plomaritis Family Foundation in 2012, which has funded over $70,000 in college scholarships for students graduating from Lowell and Pelham high schools. In addition, Plomaritis recently established a perpetual scholarship at Boston University. Plomaritis and his high school sweetheart, Claire, were married for sixty-five remarkable years and had four children.
Absolutely every dollar from the sale of Titus goes directly to the Plomaritis Family Foundation to scholarships for deserving students.
