Rine came upon an accident along Route 87, who involved his previous Scout leader for Cub and Webelos. He was on his way to a scouting event with his troop. He went above and beyond the call of duty until medical help was summoned.

Rine is serving as a Quartermaster for his troop. He is an eighth-grade student at C.E. McCall Middle School, Montoursville.
