Student Leadership PosterROAR Student Leadership Program

    Students, are you looking for a way to network with successful chiropractors in the field and get their advice?

    Need to practice your public speaking skills so you’re ready to promote your practice after graduation?

    Want to be part of a force that shapes the future of Sherman College?

If these opportunities interest you, consider joining the ROAR Student Leadership Program. This new program is part of the college’s Reach Out And Recruit (ROAR) efforts. ROAR doctors give back to the college by recruiting future leaders in the field and helping Sherman grow and develop.

As a ROAR Student Leader, you can:

  • Get direct access to our ROAR docs
  • Make contact with potential Health Center patients
  • Hone your leadership and public speaking skills
  • Score some ROAR swag
  • Become an automatic part of our ROAR team after graduation.

Sherman students who join the ROAR Student Leadership Program must be in 8th quarter or above and in good academic standing. ROAR Student Leadership members will meet twice each quarter (with lunch on us!), including time with President Cordero. Meetings will cover school event opportunities and speaking engagements (you get to hone your skills and this helps greatly with our recruiting program) and brainstorming ways to promote chiropractic and Sherman in the community.

Jillian Kersh, DCTo join the ROAR Student Leadership Program, please contact ROAR Director Jillian Kersh, D.C., at jkersh@sherman.edu.

If you are chosen, Dr. Kersh will contact you shortly. There are only a few available spots, so apply early!

How did you hear about the ROAR Student Leadership program and why did you decide to get involved?
I have always had an interest in sharing my story of chiropractic and how it has impacted my life. This opportunity opened up and gave me a foot in the door for a chance to share the chiropractic story and lifestyle with people who may have never understood exactly what chiropractic is.

What are the benefits to you? How do you think this will help you as a student and as you go into practice?
Being able to stand up in front of a group of people, whether it be 2 or 200, and share information about something I truly care about is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. This program has given me that chance.

Why do you think it is important for doctors of chiropractic to refer students? Why should they help out with recruiting?
Often times, I don’t think D.C.s really understand the impact that they are making on young students that are just finishing college and are afraid that they may be choosing the wrong profession. Read More >>
