Ryan Jacob Enos, earned the Boys Scouts highest achievement by becoming an Eagle Scout.  He is the son of Terry V. Enos and Donna Marie Enos of Matthews, North Carolina.  The grandson of Peter and Joanne McMurtrie of Mint Hill, North Carolina.

Ryan attends Queens Grant High School locally.  He attended the prestigous American Legion Tar Heel Boys’ State Program in 2018 as a delegate from Matthews Post 235.  He began scouting as a Cub Scout at Pack 214 located at the Matthews United Methodist Church.  In  January 2012 he earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light.  Then Enos joined the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Troop 140 at Cross and Crown Lutheran Church in February 2012.

Enos Eagle Scout Service Project was completed in 2017.  He then pursued and earned 13 Eagle Scout required merit badges including the three citizenship badges.  These badges represent Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the Nation, and Citizenship in the World.

He accomplished all the Eagle Scout requirements in the autumn of 2018 when he earned the Eagle rank.  Enos Eagle Scout Court of Honor was celebrated on February 11, 2019.  BSA Troop 140 recognized Ryan’s achievement with a 5-year membership in the National Eagle Scout Association, the Marine Corps League Citizenship Citation, and Detachment 750 Challenge Coin which were both presented by Marine Richard Mitchells of Detachment 750 in Mint Hill.

The American Legion National Commander’s Citizenship Award, the Matthews Post Citizenship Medal and Citation was presented by Legionnaire Mike Rusho of Matthews American Legion Post 235.

While a Life Scout Ryan planned, developed, and gave leadership to scouts and adults in order to complete his Eagle Scout Service Project.  He chose Socrates Academy as the beneficiary of the project “Socrates Academy Gaga Ball Pit.”  As a graduate of the Academy he knew the middle school students did not have an outdoor play area or equipment exclusively for their use.  Therefore, he chose as his service project the construction of a Gaga Ball Pit for the students to use and enjoy.  Literally within minutes of the completion of the Pit students were enjoying the game!

Congratulations Ryan Enos for your community service and outstanding acheivement!
