Scout Earns 122 Merit Badges

James Calderwood of Chevy Chase, Md., has earned all 122 Boy Scout merit badges, far more than the 21 required for Eagle Scout. He had to sew three sashes together for all his badges.

Here's a good article from the Washington Post going into greater detail:


Calderwood's father is an antitrust lawyer and his mother was surgeon general of the Coast Guard--which seems to have put James in quite a resourceful position based oh his global travels.

To put things into perspective, I considered myself a fairly accomplished Boy Scout and earned somewhere in the vicinity of 35 merit badges.
