NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WLNE) — An Attleboro teen has a major accomplishment under his belt, after earning every merit badge the Boy Scouts of America has to offer.

Eagle Scout Gregory Beagan earned 138 Boy Scout merit badges.

He’s the little brother of two Eagle Scouts and at 17, he’s followed his goal of earning all of the badges over a span of 7 years.

“I looked at the number of merit badges there were, little 11-year-old me thought ‘well there’s only 138..maybe I can do it. and so I set a goal for myself.. and I stuck with it,” said Beagan.

The teen is in elite company with this accomplishment.

He’s now one of 400 who have earned all the badges since the Scouts began in 1910.
