Sherman College student Jeimmy Sánchez Guzmán was recently named Student Leader of the Year by Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC, in appreciation of her contributions, time and commitment to growing the chiropractic profession. This award is presented to an exceptional student leader who has participated in a number of recruiting activities leading to the matriculation of students at Sherman College.
Sánchez will graduate in December 2020; she is originally from Coamo, PR. Having recently served a term as Chiropractic Student Government Treasurer, she is also a Student Ambassador, a representative on the Admissions Committee and serves in the X-Ray Intern Program. Jeimmy served as a peer tutor in several challenging courses, including biochemistry, anatomy and physiology, and osteology and arthrology.
“These programs are a great way for me to connect and stay connected with prospective students, applicants, accepted students, and current students,” Sánchez shared. “I show my support to my colleagues in any way that I can because they are my family. I have met incredible people along my journey who have inspired me to become a better professional. People need to hear about chiropractic and experience their own connection to their nervous system. It’s a very transformative experience.”
Sánchez now dedicates her time to focus on her chiropractic art to become a better adjuster; she intends to become an associate doctor of chiropractic in North Carolina, and she plans to continue to share her chiropractic knowledge in the community as a Spanish translator.
Sherman College named its 2020 award recipients as part of Lyceum, a homecoming and continuing education event attended by hundreds of chiropractors and students throughout the U.S. and internationally. Lyceum is held each May and involves three days of seminars, special events and other programs; this year’s Lyceum was held as a live-streaming event for the first time ever to preserve this crucial continuing education opportunity for Doctors of Chiropractic. More than 700 people participated.
