Daniel Dale of Troop 654 in the Ponderosa LDS Ward, Parker, CO, has achieved something that has never been achieved in Scouting. He was born with Cerebral Palsy which affects his legs for the most part. He is now returning to walking on crutches and working to again be an independent walker.

He has earned every award, merit badge and rank in Scouting. That includes 129 Merit Badges and 20 Eagle Rank Palm Awards. In 2010, the 100th Anniversary of Scouting, the number of active Merit Badges went from 121 to 129. Daniel was in the perfect position to earn those extra 8 Badges and did so. Read more...
