Brandon Robert Boyd, the son of Robert and Nicole Boyd of Martinez, earned the rank of Eagle Scout, which was presented in Court of Honor ceremonies Nov. 18, at the Hope Center in Pleasant Hill.

He is a member of Boy Scout Troop 277, under the leadership of Scoutmaster Don Hinton.

For his Eagle Scout community service project, Boyd spearheaded a collection drive for Operation Gratitude, a program that sends packages of items to soldiers overseas. He collected handwritten letters and various items, which he and his family drove to Van Nuys to deliver.

During his Scouting career, Boyd earned 33 badges, including two historic centennial badges for carpentry and pathfinding.

Boyd, 17, is a senior at Alhambra High School in Martinez.
