Kris Boyle is well-versed in the world of journalism and communications. On February 3, Boyle will speak at the college Faith + Works Lecture Series on “Harnessing the Power of the Lord in Our Educational Journey.” He will discuss what the phrase “be still” means to him and how faith, action, sacrifice and love have influenced him in doing the Lord’s work.
Boyle, originally from Idaho, earned his bachelor’s degree in print journalism and his master’s degree in mass communication. He later received his doctorate degree from Texas Tech University in mass communications. Following this accomplishment, Boyle spent six years at Creighton University as an assistant professor of journalism before returning to BYU.
At BYU, Boyle teaches undergraduate classes in media writing and editing and is a member of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC). When he is not in the classroom or in the newsroom, Boyle enjoys time with his wife and sons, as well as running, biking and attending BYU sporting events.
