The Ben Butler Courage 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 was presented by Mr. Butler's wife, LaJoie Butler, and his son, Ben Butler, Jr. This year’s recipient was eighth grader Lathan Windley. Lathan is the son of Stanley and Linda Windley.
