Dr. John F. "Rick" Meyers Receives Yellow Jacket Salute Award
Dee Raubenstine '80, Rick Meyers and President Robert R. Lindgren
Dr. John F. “Rick” Myers received the Randolph-Macon College Society of Alumni Yellow Jacket Salute on March 8, 2013. The award was presented at the Macon Connections breakfast at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Virginia. Dee Raubenstine ’80, the SOA director-at-large, presented the award.
The Society of Alumni created the Yellow Jacket Salute award to honor those who have provided outstanding service in the furtherance of the mission of Randolph-Macon College.
Meyers has been a volunteer leader and mentor for the Randolph-Macon Athletic Training Department for more than 30 years. His dedication to R-MC athletics is truly a wonder. Because of his role as Team Physician, our student-athletes receive the best possible care from the day they sustain their injuries to the moment they return to play.
Meyers is a member of the Sports Medicine & Arthroscopy Team at Tuckahoe Orthopaedics. He earned his medical degree from Ohio State University and completed both his internship and residency at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. In addition, he is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Meyers’ list of accomplishments is impressive: He served as Head Physician for the XVII Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway. He is an active member of the Virginia Special Olympics and currently serves on the Board of Directors. He is active in the Arthroscopy Association of North America and previously served as its president. He has devoted much time to research that has resulted in numerous improvements in treatments and surgical techniques, especially for shoulder arthroscopy.
Meyers also enjoys training the next generation of surgeons. He serves as the Fellowship Director of the Sports Medicine & Arthroscopy Fellowship with Orthopaedic Research of Virginia.
Meyers and his wife Sally have three children and five grandchildren. In his free time, he enjoys playing golf, fishing and spending time with his grandchildren.
The Randolph-Macon community is grateful to Meyers for his many years of service to the college.
