Indiana Eagle Scout earns every merit badge available

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An Indiana Eagle Scout achieves a rare accomplishment: earning every merit badge available.

Zach Teeple belongs to Troop 149 in Bluffton, Indiana, just south of Fort Wayne. He earned 137 badges, which is every badge an Eagle Scout can earn.

Teeple says he set the goal more than five years ago.

"I thought that would be a good goal and a fun challenge," he said, adding that everyone should, "keep the end in sight, and make sure that you set your goal, and that you just keep working towards it."

Only 332 other scouts throughout history have earned all badges available.
