Success in the Boy Scouts of America is somewhat measured in merit badges, patches and rank.
That makes Carter Harwell the leader of the pack.
Carter, 13, recently earned all 133 merit badges offered by the Boy Scouts.
“It’s fun,” Carter said of his aim to earn all the badges. “It’s a lot of fun to try and do this stuff. I met so many people along the way.
“I didn’t start Scouting thinking I’m going to get them all. It just kind of happened. I started working toward them.”
