Leslie Wise, D.C., Honored with Service to the Profession Award from Sherman College

Spartanburg chiropractor and Sherman College faculty member Leslie Wise, D.C., recently received the Service to the Profession Award from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC, in recognition of his contributions, time and commitment to the profession, the public and the college. The Service to the Profession Award is given to an individual who has demonstrated extraordinary, unselfish and noteworthy service to the chiropractic profession.

Dr. Wise has served Sherman College since 1974 in many leadership and teaching capacities through the years. The first faculty member to teach using a webpage and the first to put lectures in digital format, Dr. Wise continuously goes the extra mile. He has authored works and presented on topics ranging from the standard of care to fiduciary responsibilities of chiropractic to professional boundaries and assessing clinical competencies.

Dr. Wise has served the profession in notable roles: he was Sherman College’s representative to the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards and as a founding officer, board member and site visitor for the Straight Chiropractic Academic Standards Association. He served for eight years on the South Carolina Board of Chiropractic Examiners, including serving as chair. He has served as a member of the Association of Chiropractic Colleges Consortium on Technique, the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) Test Committees on Part Two and Part Four, and was an independent contractor with the NBCE to produce items for the Boundaries exam.

“Dr. Wise has taught or interacted with every single student who has walked the halls of Sherman College,” said Sherman President Edwin Cordero, D.C. “His service to the college and the chiropractic profession is remarkable and deeply appreciated.”

Sherman College named its 2018 award recipients May 3-5 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 each spring in Spartanburg, SC, and involves three days of seminars, special events, and other programs; this year more than 700 were in attendance.
