Cottage Grove Scout’s daily ‘good turn’ saved a life
Do a good turn daily. It’s the slogan followed by the more than 2 million Boy Scouts across the country. And for 12-year-old Tyler Kostelecky, of Cottage Grove, saving a life last summer was simply his good turn for the day.
A student at Oltman Middle School, Tyler was recently presented with the Medal of Merit, one of the organization’s highest honors, by his troop in recognition of his quick-thinking actions that saved his cousin from drowning.
