Jackson Brown earns Eagle

Jackson Clark Brown of Kannapolis was awarded his Eagle Scout award Sunday, Sept. 25, 2011, at a Court of Honor held at The Club at Irish Creek. The award was presented by Scoutmaster Chris Puckett of Troop 87, which is sponsored by Franklin Heights Baptist Church, and pinned on his shirt by his mother, Emily Wiley Tholen.
Jackson has earned 32 merit badges and the Bronze Palm. He is a member of Order of the Arrow and is currently serving as assistant scoutmaster.
He has served as a staff member at Camp John J. Barnhardt during the summer, where he taught small boat sailing, canoeing, kyaking, snorkeling and as a BSA lifeguard.
Jackson’s Eagle project consisted of building six picnic tables for Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. He raised the funds and enlisted fellow scouts to help with his project.
The son of Kenny Brown of Kannapolis and Emily Wiley Tholen of Bluffton, S.C., Jackson is the grandson of Jay and Faith Brown of Greenville, S.C., Henry and Betty Wiley of Kannapolis and the late Janice Thompson Hawthorne of Abbeville, S.C.
