Master Sargent Brenda Boyd, JROTC instructor, retired from Keenan after 22 years. Boyd started the JROTC program at Keenan in 1993.

“She was a good co-worker who went beyond the call of duty to make sure the cadets were taken care of,” Major Walter Savage, JROTC instructor, said.

Savage joined Boyd in December 1993; he knew Boyd for 22 years.

“She was one of my mentors and a great leader,” Master Sergeant John Roberts, Keenan’s new Army Instructor (AI), said.

Boyd worked hard with the drill team and was competitive.

“I will miss her presence; Sgt. Boyd [and I] were close,” Junior Tonisha Hall said.

Students were shocked when they heard Boyd had retired. Boyd will be missed by many JROTC cadets, Keenan staff members, coworkers and friends.
