Tyle LaGrave (B.S. Physics)

                                                       

My favorite memory was researching and presenting the heliospheric radio emissions detected by the Voyager Plasma Wave Instrument in the class Physics 4611: Introduction to Space Physics.

In 2013, I married my best friend, Olga, graduated with a master's degree from Central Seminary, and became an assistant pastor in Stillwater, MN. It has been a busy year! We now have one son, Jonathan. I am currently an assistant pastor in Stillwater, but I also teach ESL online to students in Korea. In addition, I have taught science classes for homeschool co-ops. By far, my two favorite classes were Physics 4511: Introduction to Nuclear and Particle Physics (taught by Daniel Cronin-Hennessy) and Physics 4611: Introduction to Space Physics (taught by John Wygant). Currently I am an Assistant Pastor in Stillwater, MN. I went to Central Baptist Theological Seminary after grad.
