Retired TWU faculty member supports nursing students

Retired TWU faculty member Caryl Mobley, PhD, along with her husband Larry Mobley, have established the Caryl E. and Larry W. Mobley Nursing Scholarship Endowment to support students pursuing a nursing degree at Texas Woman’s. The couple’s commitment to education through this generous gift stems from their remarkable professional careers.

Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Caryl earned her undergraduate degree in nursing from Duke University, then her master’s in nursing with a specialization in maternal-child health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She then moved to Texas and completed her doctorate at the University of Texas at Dallas, specializing in human development and communication sciences. After a career as a nurse, she entered into academia as an assistant professor at TWU, eventually earning tenure and the title of full professor. Larry Mobley, a North Carolina native, also graduated from Duke and had a notable career in engineering and manufacturing management before retiring in 2010.

The couple now enjoys their retirement in North Carolina, but have chosen to give back to Texas Woman’s because of the impact the institution has on its students. With this gift, the Mobleys have ensured that nursing students at TWU have what they need to succeed.

Anyone can leave a legacy at Texas Woman’s University, and endowments provide the means for donors to make an impact that lasts generations. Starting at $25,000, endowments can be created with an outright gift or paid over a five-year period. Through the agreement process, donors will have the opportunity to choose awarding criteria such as designation to a specific major, minimum GPA, financial need and more.
