• Kevin Benes Memorial Scholarship

    This scholarship was established to commemorate Kevin Benes, a Lockport Township High School Class of 2008 alumnus.

He is loved and remembered by all who knew him as a kind, fun-loving, and helpful young man. Kevin enjoyed academic and extracurricular achievement during his high school career at LTHS. He was a four-year member of the Football and Track/Field teams, who achieved status as an Illinois State Scholar and as a member of the Top Ten Percent of the Class of 2008. The Kevin Benes Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a graduating LTHS senior who has shown strength and determination to overcome a tragic event, personal challenge, or hardship.
