Boyd is a graduate of Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana with an Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design Technology and an Associate of Applied Science Electrician Apprenticeship. Boyd was selected as Outstanding Alumna for the Southwest Region in 2008 and the Outstanding Alumna for the State in 2010.
Also in 2010, she was the recipient of the Jefferson Award, a national program that recognizes outstanding community service and public service. The award was established by the American Institute for Public Service, an organization founded by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator Robert Taft and Sam Beard in 1972.
Boyd was the recipient of her awards due to her work in a non-traditional career field, the fact that she is a respected small business owner, an active Labor Union member, and a community volunteer. She played a vital role in the successful construction of Holly’s House, a local advocacy center for victims of intimate crimes and domestic violence, donating her time and expertise to organize hundreds of volunteers that worked on the multimillion dollar project. She continues to donate her services to maintain Holly’s House, and currently serves as its board’s president.
