Jackson Jeffrey Fu, son of Jeffrey and Kathleen Fu, of Macungie, and a member of Boy Scout Troop 439 in Allentown, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout.

He joined Cub Scouts in the first grade and earned the Arrow of Light Award before crossing over to Boy Scouts. As a Boy Scout, he held positions of leadership as librarian and patrol leader.

Jackson earned 40 merit badges and several other Scouting awards including the World Conservation Award, the Wildlife Conservation Award, and two religious awards, Ad Altare Dei and Pope Pius XII.

In addition, Jackson completed the National Youth Leadership Training in 2011. For his Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project, Jackson renovated the public restrooms at the Lower Macungie Library which included repairing, painting, and decorating the walls of both restrooms. Since becoming an Eagle Scout, he has earned the Bronze and Gold Eagle Palms. In June, Jackson was invited to the State Capitol by State Rep. Justin Simmons, R-131st, and was recognized on the House floor for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. Jackson is an honor student at Christopher Dock Mennonite High School in Lansdale and was a sophomore this past year.
