Omkar is a junior at Lambert High School and a member of Troop 27 in the Atlanta Area Council, Northern Ridge District, of the Scouts of America. Omkar completed his badges by attending merit badge clinics over the weekends and meeting with merit badge counselors from his troop. His favorite activities were scuba diving, aviation, skating, archery and backpacking. He attended Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico, where he completed most of his requirements.
