Widefield of Dreams

Micahel Westberg may not be the youngest Eagle Scout ever, but he is pretty close.
At just 13-years-old this Watson Junior High seventh grader has earned the highest honor of Eagle Scout, which is pretty rare. The typical age to earn the rank of Eagle is 17 or 18 years old. Scouts must earn a total of 21 merit badges of which 10 are required, provide leadership to their unit for six months after earning their Life Rank, and plan, develop, and give leadership that benefits a religious institution, a school, or a community organization. Michael helped rebuild a playground at a local elementary school. Michael’s drive to become an Eagle Scout so young stems from healthy competition with his older brother who earned his Eagle rank before his 14th birthday. Michael says his dream is to become a mechanical engineer and professional soccer player.
