MA AFCC McGovern Scholarship

Each year, the Massachusetts Chapter of AFCC offers up to 2 full scholarships for Probation Officers serving in the Probate and Family Court to attend the Annual Chapter Conference. These scholarships are given in the name of Hon. Sheila McGovern. Judge McGovern served as First Justice of the Middlesex Division of the Probate and Family Court from 1980 until her death in 2002. Appointed to the bench in 1974, after having served as a court clerk and assistant register for many years, Judge McGovern was known for her warmth and devotion to children and families, using the court process to improve their lives.

The 2021 conference will take place on April 30, 2021 from 8:45 AM to 1:00 PM online.
