One of the Foundations purposes shall be to provide educational support to family members of Sacramento County Probation Association (SCPA) members through scholarships and grants for educational purposes. In 2018 the RYF Board of Directors was proud to honor and celebrate the life of McKenna Lee Hollar. McKenna was the true catapult behind the creation of the RYF and therefore she has directly contributed to the countless number of positive impacts the RYF has had upon Probation Officers Statewide. Her positive impacts upon Probation Officers will continue to be felt forever through the RYF as we continue to grow.
