Kevin Boyle ’97 From Boeing Visits CC, Tours Hall of Science

On Thursday, May 9, 2024, Kevin Boyle ’97, Senior Strategy Analyst in Space and Launch at Boeing, visited Catholic Central and toured the new Hall of Science.   

“It’s absolutely incredible. If any kid comes here as an 8th grader and tours that building, and they have any interest in science whatsoever, they’re going to be begging their parents to come here,” stated Boyle.  

“It’s amazing to see that type of thing here at Catholic Central. When I was here, we had rain barrels in the hallway to catch the rain drops. So, to go from that to this is absolutely amazing. It couldn’t have happened to a better institution and a better place,” he continued.  

Boyle holds a B.A. degree in electrical engineering from Lawrence Technological University and an MBA from Penn State. He has been working in satellite communications for 20 years. Currently, he works for Boeing where he specializes in commercial satellite development.  

While attending Catholic Central, Boyle ran track and cross country for Coach Toni Magni. He also has fond memories of Drive and going to camp.  

Boyle credits CC for much of his success today. He recalled a time when he didn’t do so well on a math test and learned a valuable lesson about effort from one of his teachers.  

“When I was a senior, I had a math test, and I did OK. I typically got a ‘B’ or something in that range and I did slightly below normal. Father John Ward, CSB, who was my math teacher at the time, saw the test and he started yelling at me, like, ‘Hey, what’s wrong with you?’ And I was like, ‘Father, it’s only a couple points below normal.’ He responded, ‘Why is that good enough?’ I didn’t really know how to respond at the time, but I thought about it when I got home and, of course, I got angry,” Boyle stated.  

“He [Father Ward, CSB] was like, ‘I’ll see you tomorrow bright and early at 7 am.’  I was thinking, ‘I don’t want to get up early.’ So, I thought I’m going to figure this all out and make sure I know exactly what I’m doing before I get there to prove to him that I know how to do it. So, I got in there in the morning, and I knew I could explain the concepts to him and then he said to me, ‘Imagine if you came here every morning,’” Boyle continued.   

“It dawned on me that I should be giving 100% all the time or as best as I can. Nobody’s perfect all the time but push yourself even at the end of senior year when a lot of times people are checked out or whatnot. I kept pushing myself to do the best I could and realized that’s what I needed to do the rest of my life - in my career, my job, with my family - to continue to be the best that I can be. Be your best self each and every day,” he advised.
