A Scout Leader. A Stonecatcher.
Brother Marcus Turcotte
Photographer Melanie Stengel's photo captures the spirit of the relationship Brother Marcus Turcotte had with the Boy Scouts of Hartford's Troop 5. His story is inspirational. He cleared a path toward a better life for young men of Hartford's Frog Hollow neighborhood. The full story is in Hartford Courant reporter Vinny Vella's story, Scouts' Honor. Brother Turcotte is a stonecatcher.
