A real trooper
Channahon scout saluted for act of heroism
MINOOKA — Scouting skills proved handy in the case of a canoeing mishap.
Alex Youngquist of Shorewood owes a debt of gratitude to fellow Boy Scout Patrick Wilkins of Channahon. When their canoe capsized in May 2011, Wilkins was able to pull Youngquist to the safety of the shoreline.
For his efforts to assist Youngquist from a difficult situation using his scouting know-how, Wilkins was awarded a heroism award from the National Boy Scouts of American Court of Honor.
