Sara Boyd, senior project manager and co-director of the Honors Tutorial College/Voinovich Scholars program, announced her retirement on Friday, Feb. 1. Boyd has worked with the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs for 17 years and completed over 192 projects.

During her career, she has worked with the Ohio University College of Medicine, the Innovation Center, the Small Business Development Center, the Environmental Protection Agency, and many federally qualified health centers.
