Amazing Save by Olathe Northwest Student

By Ainsley Heise and Rosie Boswell

Over the summer, Eagle Scout Brian Hare saved his troop leader from drowning. Whilst rafting, Hare’s troop leader fell off the raft. Hare said he saw his leader “fighting for his life” while grabbing a tree branch. Out of instinct, Hare jumped off the raft and swam his leader to safety. In reaction to this event, Hare received a national award. However, he remains humble and says this hasn’t affected his day to day life.
