After graduating from Bosque School in 2017, Kyle Tabor has continually reached for greatness. “I was raised to always do your best and shoot for the stars, and I definitely try to embody that,” he noted. Within two years of graduating from high school, Kyle earned not one, not two, but three associate degrees from CNM in liberal arts, integrated studies, and pre-health sciences. Not only that, but he earned these associate degrees while completing his prerequisites for nursing school.
Kyle is currently working toward his Bachelor of Science in Nursing at UNM, and will graduate in about a year. After graduation, he has plans to continue his education to become either a doctor of osteopathic medicine or a certified nurse practitioner. “The most inspiring thing is that I will be able to help people and go out into the world and good for those who need it,” he expressed.
While in school, Kyle works as an ER medical scribe for Scribe America. In this position, he handles all documentation and charting on behalf of health care providers. He checks for lab and imaging updates, manages phone calls, and handles patient paperwork so that physicians can focus on the patient and patient care. “It gives me insight into what I will be getting into as a nurse should I go into the ER department,” said Kyle. “I love the experience and exposure I get, especially into acute situations.”
Prior to COVID-19, while completing his prerequisite classes, Kyle was involved with LGBT groups that supported students who identified as LGBT—creating safe spaces for them. Although life looks different now due to COVID-19, Kyle still makes the most of his spare time. He enjoys reading, brewing coffee, trying local coffee shops, running, adventuring, hiking, camping, and most importantly, spending time with his two-month-old cocker spaniel puppy named Archie.
Kyle is still close with fellow Class of 2017 Bosque School alums, Natesa Vaidya and Arianna Barros. His favorite memories from his time at Bosque School were all from the cross country team, especially during his senior year as a team captain. His biggest takeaway from his time at Bosque School was having the ability to do things in his own way, so he could succeed on his own. He added, “Señora Rekow, Scott Melton, and Mr. Barr all made a difference in my life with how they taught me, supported me in my goals and dreams, and pushed me to do my best.”
We wish Kyle all the best in his future endeavors and adventures!
