Wyatt has earned 37 merit badges and currently serves as Junior Assistant Scoutmaster. He is a Brotherhood member of Order of the Arrow; has won the World Conservation Award; earned his Arrow of Light in Cub Scouts; won the National Patrol awards five years in a row; and was on the ecology staff at Camp John J.
