Ben Butler Award
The Ben Butler Award was created in honor of Benjamin Butler, a Pass Christian Middle School teacher, who passed away in 2004 after a courageous battle with cancer. Each year this award is presented to one student who portrays the same characteristics as Ben Butler: Courage, strength, compassion, and resilience. This award is presented each year by Mr. Butler's wife, LaJoie Butler. This year’s recipient was eighth grader Trae Henderson. Trae is the son of Cary and Kandi Henderson.
