Support Students

Student Charles Tucker

When I found out I would be the first recipient of the John Porter Scholarship, I was both thrilled and proud. Dr. Porter has done so much for Sherman College, the city of Spartanburg, and our profession. Dr. Porter knocked down doors early on so that students like me don’t have to along our chiropractic journey. The John Porter Scholarship not only helped me financially for school, but it motivated me to excel in this profession no matter what obstacles get in my way.
