Enumclaw residents Christopher Morgan and Gordon Crosby recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout during a ceremony at the VFW Post 1949 on Jan. 5, 2020.

Christopher Morgan, 18, has been in Troop 422 since he was 10. Morgan’s Eagle project was refurbishing unusable violins for the Magic Strings Program housed at Southwood Elementary School. Morgan graduated from Enumclaw High School in 2019, enlisting in the United States Navy in Special Forces to train as a Navy Seal. He expects to ship out this spring to Great Lakes, IL for both bootcamp and pre-BUDS training, after which he will head to Coronado, CA for Navy Seal training.

Gordon Crosby, age 18, began his scouting adventure as a member of Troop 546 until it disbanded and then became a member of Troop 422. Crosby’s Eagle project was garden renovations at Enumclaw Church of the Nazarene. Crosby graduated from Enumclaw High School in 2019 and is attending Green River Community College to complete his Associates Degree. His future plans include transferring to a 4-year university to earn a bachelor’s degree and getting a Commission with the United States Air Force.
