Remembering Tyler

Family, friends, and former professors gathered at the corner of Bushnell and Pleasant Streets on the morning of June 27 to celebrate the life of Tyler Hubb’15.

Tyler Hubb The 2015 honors graduate died in November, just months after Commencement, the result of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. He was 22-years-old.

Alongside a newly planted Winter King Hawthorn tree that was dedicated as a memorial, Hubb was remembered as a person who brought curiosity and passion to so many different things: motorcycle racing, art, computer science. College President Scott Bierman noted that he was probably the first Beloit College student ever to have participated in a motorcycle competition on the morning of his own Commencement. Hubb was an accomplished Champion Cup Series racer, who grew up in South Beloit, Ill., and came to the college initially as a Porter Scholar during high school. A computer science major, he had just moved to Eau Claire, Wis., to take a job as a software developer.
