Jackson’s Eagle project benefitted the residents of Peters Township as he worked with the Parks and Recreation Department to improve the Peters Lake Park walking trail. Jackson extended the existing trail a quarter of a mile around the lake, which included clearing brush and fallen trees in the area, and he constructed of a set of steps so walkers can traverse a hill along the path. He raised $504 for his project through a car wash and collected donations of $236 from passersby during his workdays.

At his Court of Honor ceremony, Jackson received many letters of recognition from national, state and local dignitaries. Mr. Tom O’Brien, Scoutmaster, talked about the process and responsibilities of an Eagle Scout as well as detailing the road taken by Jackson to achieve the rank. Russ Spicuzza, Elk Scouting Representative, of South Hills B.P.O.E. Lodge 2213 in Bethel Park gave a short congratulatory talk and presented the new Eagle Scout with two framed Certificates of Merit, one each from the Local and National Elks Lodge (Chicago). Spicuzza also presented Jackson with a personal sized American flag and a small gold lapel pin, which represents 80+ years of the relationship between the Elks and Scouting.
