From GED to PhD - A story of success through determination, education

Surrounded by poverty and crime and raised in an environment of abuse and neglect, Boykin proudly points to education (the first in his family to step onto a college campus) as the vehicle of his escape and the pathway to his success.

Boykin shared his inspirational story with students at Broome-Tioga BOCES while visiting the area October 20 to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Literacy Volunteers of Broome-Tioga Co., Inc.
