To make a donation to Officer Michael Kern Scholarship Fund — >

The Olathe Police Foundation awards collegiate scholarships to children of Olathe Police Department employees graduating from high school each Spring. These awards are granted in memory of Officer Michael Kern who suffered a massive heart attack and passed away in February, 2015. The OPF hosts an annual 7.04 mile run and a 5k run/walk in Ofc. Kern’s memory. Through these efforts the Olathe Police Foundation granted four $500 scholarships in Mike’s memory in 2016. With your support it is our mission to continue this effort.
