ROAR Student LeaderROAR Student Leader of the Year Award

Abingdon, VA, native and future doctor of chiropractic Mike Williams was recently named Reach Out and Recruit (ROAR) Student Leader of the Year by Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC, in appreciation of his contributions, time and commitment to growing the chiropractic profession. Williams is an eighth-quarter student at Sherman College.

The ROAR Student Leader of the Year award is given to an exceptional member of Sherman College’s ROAR Student Leadership Program who has participated in a number of recruiting activities leading to the matriculation of students at Sherman College. ROAR asks its student leaders to reach beyond their comfort zone and help Sherman recruit future leaders for the profession, which Williams has certainly done.

In addition to being one of the college’s standout members of the ROAR Student Leadership Program, Williams also works as a Student Ambassador during the college’s VIP weekend for prospective students (called Showcase Sherman), where he is often depended upon for his strong leadership; he was named Star Student of the Quarter last summer. He is active in other organizations on the Sherman College campus as well, serving as president of the Students Veterans of America Club, president of Kappa Chi Service Club and treasurer of Network Spinal Analysis Club.

Williams has a bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Emory and Henry College, where he played football, ran track and served as a trainer for the basketball teams. After college, he worked as a high school science teacher for 15 years and coached various sports for 17 years, including football and track. He had the privilege of coaching five state champions.

As a ROAR student leader, Mike has shown a continued interest in recruiting students from the Tri-City area of Tennessee, which includes Bristol, Kingsport and Johnson City, and he has been an invaluable resource in Sherman’s recruiting efforts in that geographic area. During fall 2016, Mike represented Sherman College at three recruiting events. He organized a speaking engagement at East Tennessee State University that resulted in four applicants and two students enrolling at Sherman.

Sherman College named its 2017 award recipients May 4-6 as part of Lyceum, an annual continuing education and homecoming event attended by hundreds of chiropractors and students throughout the U.S. and internationally. Lyceum is held on the college’s campus in Spartanburg, SC, and involves three days of seminars, special events, and other programs.

Greenville, SC, chiropractor Kevin Lewis, D.C., was recently named Reach Out and Recruit (ROAR) Career Advisor of the Year by Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC, in appreciation of his contributions, time and commitment to growing the chiropractic profession.

The ROAR Career Advisor of the Year award is given to an exceptional ROAR member who has gone above and beyond to recruit students to Sherman College. ROAR asks its doctors to reach beyond their comfort zone and help Sherman recruit future leaders for the profession, which Dr. Lewis has certainly done.

Dr. Lewis is 2010 Sherman College graduate whose passion is helping his patients to be happy, healthy and live the lives they want. After an on-the-job injury left him facing spine surgery and almost unable to perform his duties as a police officer, he sought a way to heal that without the use of drugs or invasive procedures – and he discovered chiropractic.

Dr. Lewis has been selected as ROAR Advisor of the Year for his continual support of his alma mater. Since his graduation, Dr. Lewis has referred several students to Sherman, and he has assisted the college in recruiting efforts at his undergraduate alma mater, The Citadel, as well as other outreach programs. He says it is always a pleasure to point prospective students to Sherman College to embark on their journeys into the profession.
