Kevin C. Reed Memorial Scholarship Program

The East Bay Football Officials Association (EBFOA) is more than a group of referees who ensure fair play, sportsmanship, and safety on the football field. We are also individuals from our communities that value academic excellence, leadership, and community service among the student athletes we officiate.

To support this mission our Kevin C. Reed Memorial Scholarship Program provides member-funded scholarships to our student athletes pursuit of higher education and to encourage them to continue making a positive impact in their communities and our world.  Now in our third decade, we are proud to support our deserving high school seniors who have embodied these qualities throughout their high school academic and athletic careers.

We believe that education is the key to personal and professional growth, and that it can empower individuals to achieve their goals in the ultimate sport, life.

The EBFOA Scholarship Program Founded in 2003, and subsequently named in memory of EBFOA member and East Bay First Responder Lt. Kevin C. Reed who we lost in 2007. Kevin’s legacy of courage, integrity, and service continues to inspire EBFOA.
