He and his wife Robin have hosted numerous alumni events.

He is currently President of the Boy Scouts of America, Heart of America Council, Chairman of the Board for the Kansas City Repertory Theatre and President of the Board of the Kansas City Chorale. He also serves as a Director of St. Luke’s Healthcare System Foundation and is a Director of the American Royal.
During his years at Westminster, Boswell was a President of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity, a member of the academic honorary Omicron Delta Kappa, the Honor Commission and a Student Ambassador.
In addition to his Bachelor of Arts degree from Westminster, he holds a Masters of Business Administration degree from the University of Chicago and is a Certified Employee Benefits Specialist.
