About Jim Boyd
Jim Boyd, one of the REAL (Resumed Education for Adult Learners) students on campus at Tufts University. Boyd has been at Tufts since the summer of 2009 and plans to graduate with the class of 2013. He comes to the Medford campus after spending a semester at University of Massachusetts Boston in the Spring of 2009. Prior to UMB there was a gap of four decades in Boyd’s quest for a college degree. After high school graduation Boyd attended Long Island University in Brooklyn, NY and Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ in the evenings before abandoning his efforts to obtain a degree in order to concentrate on a career in television. That career began in 50 years ago and ended with Boyd’s retirement from WCVB-TV in Boston at the end of 2008.
