August 25, 2017 — Today, at The National Convention and Expo, ChiroHealthUSA announced the recipient of the 2017 ChiroHealthUSA Foxworth Family Scholarship in honor of President Dr. Ray Foxworth’s parents, Drs. Betty Pace Mathews and Charles Vernon Mathews.
This year’s $25,000 scholarship winner is William Stetzel, a chiropractic student at Sherman College of Chiropractic. William receives $10,000 for school expenses and $5,000 in cash to help offset his living expenses, with an additional $10,000 donation being made to the school. Mr. Stetzel was present for the announcement and check presentation. “It is such a blessing and an honor to be awarded this scholarship,” William says. “My biggest hope in receiving it is that one day I can give it back to the profession both financially and through service.”
“We were honored and proud to learn that Sherman College student Billy Stetzel was selected as the recipient of ChiroHealthUSA’s prestigious Foxworth Family Scholarship,” said Dr. Edwin Cordero, President of Sherman College of Chiropractic. “His dedication to the profession comes naturally, as he is part of a growing chiropractic family close to our hearts at Sherman College. His father, Gregg, is a 1983 Sherman College graduate. His mother, Kim, is on the college’s board of trustees, and his sister, Danielle, is a current student at Sherman as well.”
“We are pleased to award this scholarship. Supporting the profession has been a core part of our mission since ChiroHealthUSA was founded almost 10 years ago,” said Dr. Ray Foxworth. “Tuition at chiropractic colleges across the country has risen significantly since I graduated more than 30 years ago. I am overjoyed that we have been able to extend our support to include students who have expressed a passion for serving patients and our profession.”
Kendra Strange, Director of Financial Aid for Sherman College of Chiropractic, was not at all surprised to hear that William had been selected as the recipient of ChiroHealthUSA Foxworth Family Chiropractic Scholarship.
“He is an assiduous scholar, consistently appearing on the Dean’s List and the President’s List each quarter,” Strange said. “William has a kind-hearted and sincere demeanor which I know will propel him to become a successful chiropractor and a selfless contributor to the community he is soon to serve.”

“There are no words that can truly explain what chiropractic means to me.
