Dr. Joan & Mr. Willard L. Boyd Scholarship

Dr. Joan J. Boyd and Mr. Willard L. Boyd established this scholarship in 2014 because of their desire to assist qualified minority students who have an interested in pursuing a degree in health or medical related careers in Clinical Laboratory Science. Dr. Boyd was a YSU professor who had more than 17 scholarly articles in referred journals, newspapers, and magazines. Mr. Boyd served as Postmaster in Youngstown Postal Service for 14 years. The Boyd’s believe that the healthcare systems’ personnel should represent the clients they are serving, since there is a lack of minority professionals in laboratory science.
