The School Pride Award is up for grabs to any student who submits an entry to the Alumni Association showing how you share or exemplify Sherman Pride in your life.

All submissions can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is _______________.
The officers of the Alumni Association will select a winner in December and that winner will have a $500 credit applied to their tuition for the Winter 2018 Academic Quarter. Please note that by submission of your #ShermanPride, you are giving permission to Sherman College of Chiropractic to use your entry in print publications and/or digital media.
Get going and show us that #ShermanPride!
2016 School Pride Award Recipient: Lindsay Carature Portillo
Lindsay Carature Portillo of Connecticut was Sherman College’s recipient of the inaugural School Pride Award worth $500 in tuition credit. The money was raised last year on Sherman Pride Day.
In her winning essay, Portillo said she has shown her Sherman Pride by participating in Showcase Sherman Weekend as a student panelist, working in the Alumni Relations office and always wearing her Sherman gear when she travels.
“I want people to know that I’m grateful to be attending Sherman,” she explained. “I want people to know that I’m proud to be part of a profession that facilitates the body’s own ability to heal. I get excited when someone asks me a question about my Sherman shirt. It’s a great conversation starter and education tool!”
She also shared how her work in the alumni office inspires her. “I love my work-study job because I have the opportunity to connect with alumni,” she said. “It comforts me to know that many people that have walked this path before me are pursuing their goals. It reassures me that I’ll be nothing but successful.”
