Welcome to Save the! This page is dedicated to documenting the history of the Enka Jet, beloved mascot of Enka Middle School in beautiful Candler, North Carolina. Currently, this mascot of 44 years is in need of repair and needs your help to get back to its former glory! Citizens from the community are helping to restore the plane, but we are in need of your support through donations to help fund tools and materials to restore this beautiful piece of American history! The jet was recently featured on WLOS News 13 here:
