Andy and Marie Boyd in front of GDA sign

Andy and Marie Boyd recently toured Guide Dogs of America’s campus. Mr. Boyd’s grandfather, Joseph Jones, founded the school in 1948 with the help of his union, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

Guide Dogs of America recently welcomed Andy and Marie Boyd to tour our campus with GDA Alum Lorri Bernson and her guide dog Carter. Mr. Boyd is the grandson of Joseph Jones, the catalyst for the start of our wonderful school. “I never realized the impact my grandfather had until I actually saw how life-changing this facility is,” said Mr. Boyd. “Seeing what my grandfather was a part of had a tremendous personal impact on me.”
