Ryan Corley achieves Eagle rank

Ryan Corley, a member of Portola Valley's Boy Scout Troop 64 and a sophomore at Menlo School, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, and was honored at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony on Jan. 31.

To commemorate his achievement, the U.S. flag was flown over Capitol Hill in his honor on his 16th birthday, according to his mother, Kristi Corley.

Ryan completed 24 merit badges. For his Eagle Scout service project, he led a team in restoring an old observation deck and benches at the north end of Russian Ridge, a part of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District. The project, which took more than 200 hours, included cutting lumber, drilling screws, removing brush, replacing a table, sanding and staining the deck.

Ryan is the son of Chuck and Kristi Corley of Portola Valley. Portola Valley Troop 64 is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Menlo Park and has 35 active scouts.
