Cub Scout lauded for saving diabetic mom
News Staff Reporter
In just two months as a member of Cub Pack No. 139 of the Boy Scouts of America, 6-year-old DeMaris Scarver has learned to become a better listener and sharpened his ability to take instructions – all of which helped him save his mother’s life.
Honing those skills would benefit anyone, but they are vitally important for the King Center Charter School second-grader because his mother, Dinesha Scarver, suffers from Type I – or insulin-dependent – diabetes.
