In 1975 he earned his Associate in Arts degree, concentrating in speech and theater, and was active in student government, public speaking, readers theater, drama, and oral interpretation of literature. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1977, concentrating on mass communications with radio and TV broadcasting production courses. Meyer earned a Master of Arts degree in government and politics in 1989. He worked 14 years with and for the blind, both as a reader and books-on-tape producer.
Meyer’s favorite quote is: “The United States is no more a Christian nation because most of its citizens are Christians than it is a ‘white’ nation because most of its citizens are white. We are Americans because we practice democracy and believe in republican government, not because we practice revealed religion and believe in Bible-based government.”
