Georgia's Volunteer of the Month: Kevin Enright

By David Crawford

Kevin Enright

Kevin Enright, of Augusta, is the true definition of a dedicated volunteer. Over the last 19 years, Kevin has been the local coordinator for the Augusta Stars Special Olympics agency; a certified head coach in many sports; a Unified Partner; sports clinician; Camp Inspire volunteer; games evaluation team member; bocce rules official; and most importantly, a parent of a Special Olympics athlete. In 2003, Kevin traveled with Team USA to Ireland for World Games, serving as the Southeast Bocce Coach. Kevin has taken his agency to numerous Atlanta Braves and Atlanta Falcons games. In the process, he met several professional players; including former Atlanta Brave outfielder B.J. Surhoff, who played catch with his athletes. Through it all, Kevin has said he wouldn't change anything because he gets to see every day how the athletes' abilities change the general public's perception of intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics Georgia is truly honored to have Kevin Enright in the family
