…Braiden is an “over achiever”! When he finds something he enjoys he goes all in. At age 11 he earned his first Scout merit badge and was on his way to earn the 21 necessary as part of becoming an Eagle Scout. He also loved attending camps. He went to at least 4 states and attended merit college events at 4 universities. He became an Eagle Scout, but he also achieved the honor of being 1 in fewer than 500 Boy Scouts in history to earn all 137 merit badges right before his 18th birthday. He did not stop there! He joined the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s National Honor Society which opened many more doors for him. Braiden sees himself in scouting leadership roles for many years to come.
