The Probation Officers Professional Association of Indiana provides a scholarship in memory of Donald “Charley” Knepple. Charley lost his life on April 28, 1997, while performing his probation officer duties in Allen County, Indiana. In an effort to honor an outstanding professional and to promote further professionalism, POPAI selected a scholarship that would encourage continued education and advanced degrees for probation in Indiana.
2021 Knepple Scholarship Winners: Sarah Lochner and Alexis Stogdill
This year we received applications from two applicants who are equally impressive. For the first time that any board members could remember, the applicants ended in a tie. Both scored phenomenally well with several scoring guides reflecting the maximum points allowable. POPAI awarded two (2) scholarships this year. Congratulations to Sarah Lochner and Alexis Stogdill. more
