With great sadness, we mourn the passing of our loved one, Carl Meyers, who was also The Mathew Forbes Romer Foundation’s founding Vice President of Growth and Development and a member of our Board of Directors. Carl passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 8, 2020.
Since the inception of our Foundation, Carl has been a leader and committed partner in our growth and development. One of his greatest accomplishments was establishing the College of Nursing Scholarship programs with Florida Atlantic University and Nova Southeastern University – programs that fall under our Nursing School Educational focus. Under this pillar, the Foundation has funded more than 40 nursing scholarships with FAU, FIU and NSU and created school training programs, including simulations demonstrating in-home family care.
As we mourn Carl, we also celebrate the beautiful legacy he leaves behind as part of our Foundation. Thank you, Carl, from all of us. We love you!
