Bill and Sheila Boyd are natives of Johnson County and share a longtime commitment to the community. The Boyd McGurk Family Endowment Fund is also a tribute to Sheila's parents, Bob and Leona McGurk, and Bill's parents, Paul and Mary Boyd, who demonstrated to their children the significance of generosity. The Boyds want to continue to express the importance of giving back to the community that is home for their children, Kevin, Nathan and his wife Sammy and Steven Boyd.
Bill and Sheila support the same areas as the Community Foundation of arts, culture and humanities; education; environment and animals; health and human services; and public and social benefit. They will focus the proceeds of their fund in those areas. Bill and Sheila are founding members of the Community Foundation of Johnson County, and Sheila now serves as Development Director for the organization.
