From Branding Iron to Stethoscope: A Rural Success Story

Changing irrigation pipe, bucking bales, mending fences, and lending a hand during the busy calving season…This was the lifestyle that Nick West grew to love during his upbringing on his family’s cattle ranch on the outskirts of Imbler—a quiet agricultural community in Northeast Oregon with a population of roughly 300 residents. As a student, he also immersed himself in the local community through activities like FFA and 8-man football to take in all that the rural area had to offer before graduating from Imbler High School in 2009.
