Kaysville Boy Scout earns all 133 merit badges

KAYSVILLE, Utah - A 14-year-old Kaysville boy didn't stop when he became an Eagle Scout. He went above and beyond, earning every scouting merit badge possible.

Isaac Loveland had a goal to earn every merit badge by the time he turned fifteen. The 14-year-old is one of the youngest Boy Scouts - if not the youngest - to ever earn every badge.

When he first set the goal, Isaac knew it would be hard, but it became even harder when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

"The Boy Scouts makes some allowances for merit badges if a boy is disabled. But he didn't want to do that. I can say he completed every requirement for every merit badge that he's done," said Matt Loveland, Isaac's father.

Isaac went on all the hikes and camping trips, earning all 133 merit badges. He earned his final badge on Saturday, just one day before his fifteenth birthday.
