“I am thrilled to be part of the Shepard Meadows board and look forward to building this great program in Bristol,” said Boyko. “My business experience has taught me how to build robust organizations. I am ready to use my talents to support the continued upward growth that has begun at Shepard Meadows. We have a great team, which has created a wonderful community asset for our town and most importantly our veterans!”
