Kyle is a Health Occupations student from Exeter School District, with plans to become a registered nurse.
BCTC has helped to prepare Kyle for his future through multiple opportunities, including involvement in HOSA (Future Health Professionals) and hands-on clinical hours. Kyle is leaving BCTC with certifications for CPR, HHA, OSHA, and Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).
During his time at BCTC, Kyle attended Berks Heim for 40 hours of hands-on work where he illustrated his knowledge in range of motion, morning care, feeding, bathing, mouth care, and companionship.
In addition to his hard work in the Health Occupations program, Kyle is the Vice President of HOSA, Future Health Professionals. In 2017, Kyle placed 3rd at the HOSA State Leadership Competition. In 2018, BCTC's HOSA team was not able to attend the Leadership Competition, due to scheduling concerns, but Kyle did compete virtually, and came in 6th place. Kyle also participated in a job seeking skills workshop at BCTC, and has received the BCTC Perfect Attendance Award.
At his home school, Kyle was active in wrestling, track, and cross country. He also has put in many volunteer hours at Pottstown Memorial Medical Center, Genesis Healthcare, Berks Heim, and has helped with blood drives.
Kyle plans to attend Reading Area Community College for nursing and then attend Alvernia University for his bachelor's degree. He is confident that the work he has completed at BCTC will help him to be ahead of other nursing students in his program, who do not have the benefit of the knowledge he's gained at BCTC.
When asked how he feels about his experience at BCTC, Kyle said, "The only obstacle to overcome is yourself. The sky's the limit."
Congratulations on your accomplishments, Kyle. We look forward to hearing great things from you in the future.
