Community Involvement

The Kenny VanSlyke Award is a award of recognition that is given to a school that is serviced by the Bay Metro Officials Association. The award was created after fellow referee gave the ultimate sacrifice serving his country with the Marine Forces Reserve’s 1st Battalion, 24th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division, Saginaw, Michigan in Iraq in 2007.

The award consists of a $500 post-secondary educational scholarship given to athlete(s) chosen by the school.
