A prominent Birmingham physician and long-time Samford University donor will be remembered with the naming of a new simulation facility for Samford’s Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing.

The university’s trustee executive committee voted Oct. 26 to name the Charles A. Money Pediatric Medicine Simulation Suite for the late Birmingham doctor who practiced pediatric medicine for more than 40 years and was a member of Samford’s Board of Overseers at the time of his death in 2007. The simulation center, which is located in Leo Bashinsky Field House, provides a training laboratory for Samford’s burgeoning nursing program.

Money’s wife, Barbara, a member of Samford’s nursing faculty, provided major funding for the room which will bear her late husband’s name.

In other action, the trustees approved David J. Glenn as assistant professor of theatre, effective immediately. Glenn has served as a technical director at Samford for several years and most recently was technical director for the School of the Arts. He has degrees in production design and technology from Auburn University and the University of Arizona.

The next full meeting of the trustee board will be Nov. 30.
