Martha Ann Boyer and Morris William Boyer Scholarship Fund

In 2003, Martha Boyer established the Martha Ann Boyer and Morris William Boyer Scholarship Fund in memory of her twin children who died of multiple sclerosis. Martha Ann and Morris William graduated from Hamburg High School in 1957. Though Martha Ann was a quiet girl, she enjoyed the hustle and bustle of Reading Hospital. She worked diligently as a nurse at Reading Hospital for 10 years until she was no longer able due to the onset of multiple sclerosis. Martha Ann passed away in 1992 at the age of 52. Morris was a determined man. He obtained an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Lafayette College. Following his belief that his leadership and managerial skills were his strongest attributes, he pursued further education and graduated with a master’s degree in business administration from the Wharton School of Business. His education and skills led him to a successful career at Bell Telephone. Morris passed away in 1995 at the age of 56.
