This spring, our United Way family had the pleasure to send our fantastic leader Cindy Boyd into retirement and thank her for her 40 years service to United Way of the Greater Seacoast and our community. After so many years of dedicated work, Cindy Boyd has decided to put away the pledge cards and spend more quality time with her husband, kids, grandkids, and community. While we are sad to see Cindy go, her leadership, friendship, and impact will be felt across our community for a very long time.
Cindy started with United Way in 1977, as the office manager of the Seacoast United Fund, where she managed a lot more than just the office. She did it all, and continued to as she led United Way of the Greater Seacoast through campaigns, community groups, agencies and initiatives, and more – right through the merger of our two United Ways, always showing people the best of what United Way can be.
“In 40 years’ time, our community and our United Way has changed so much,” said Lauren Wool, Senior Director of Community Impact for United Way of the Greater Seacoast. “And Cindy truly embraced all of these changes. Not all of them were easy or comfortable, but Cindy’s ability to listen, understand, stay positive and lead by example was never short of remarkable. She always showed us the way forward.”
As Cindy goes forward into retirement, we wish her many happy relaxing years with her family and friends. And we know she’ll continue showing us all the way to LIVE UNITED.
