COPLEY/FAIRLAWN — Jackson Ostapowicz, a member of Troop No. 390 in Fairlawn, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout.

For his Eagle project, Jackson, 15, shown above right, supervised his fellow Scouts in creating a flower and vegetable garden for the Salvation Army facility on South Maple Street in West Akron. The garden is used for youth programs.

Jackson started his Scouting career as a member of Cub Scout Pack No. 3390 in Fairlawn, earning an Arrow of Light, and has served in many leadership roles with the troop.

A sophomore at Copley High School, Jackson is a member of the football team and is a former member of the marching band, where he was a percussionist.

Jackson attends Grace Church in Bath and is involved with the Young Life youth group. Last summer, he attended a Christian retreat in Colorado.

His parents are Joyce Johnson and Don Ostapowicz, of Copley.

Jackson is the third Eagle Scout in his family, following his older brothers, Peter, a 2011 graduate of Copley High School, and Kevin, who is a senior at Copley.
