Class of 2016

Following an attempt to repair injuries sustained in combat, a friend recommended Leo Levesque see a chiropractor. Levesque later said  it was “the single most important part” of his recovery.

Dr. Levesque

“My personal experience with chiropractic led me to pursue a career that will allow me to continue to serve those who are still serving, those going through what I experienced,” Levesque said. “As a chiropractor, I do just that: serve the soldiers and the community that supports them.”

Levesque says Sherman allowed him the opportunity to pursue his goals. “From the beginning of my inquiry, the people at Sherman College went out of their way to ensure my success. The needs of a service member are as unique as the environment that Sherman College of Chiropractic possesses. This is recognized by the instructors, the administration, as well as the president, a former member of the U.S. Navy.”

More About the Yellow Ribbon Program

Sherman College of Chiropractic participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. For more information, please contact the Office of Financial Aid.

Established by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, the Yellow Ribbon Program allows institutions of higher learning in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution will waive a portion of the tuition costs in the form of a scholarship and the VA will match the same amount as the institution. The Financial Aid Office looks forward to working with more of the nation’s post-9/11 veterans through this program. “The Yellow Ribbon Program offers a tremendous opportunity to serve and honor our veterans who give so much to our country,” says President Edwin Cordero, D.C. “We’re happy to participate in this program and proud to be able to help cover the cost of a college education for people who have served our country. I think it’s especially fitting at Sherman College, as service to others is a major component of our mission.”
Only individuals entitled to the maximum benefit rate (based on service requirements) may receive this funding. They may be eligible if:
  • They served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001, of at least 36 months.
  • They were honorably discharged from active duty for a service connected disability and they served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001.
  • They are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® based on a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria listed above.
