A Lee’s Summit Boy Scout has become one of the few scouts to earn every merit badge the boy scouts offer. Austin Marlin, who is 17, has gotten his journalism badge, the 121st merit badge he’s earned. He has so many of them that it takes two sashes to display them all. In fact, he has more badges than the scouts issue because he earned an atomic energy badge before the scouts replaced it with a nuclear energy badge, which he also earned. He’s already an Eagle Scout – a designation he achieved 100 badges ago.
