Patuxent High School Educational Support Person of the Year: Dawn Benton

Lusby, MD- Patuxent High School is proud to announce Dawn Benton as our Educational Support Person of the Year. As the Patuxent High School Nurse for the last fourteen 14 years, she has been invaluable to our staff and students. She has a big heart and works extremely hard every day. Mrs. Benton’s warm spirit and positive attitude help shape the welcoming culture at Patuxent.

She goes above and beyond to ensure that all students and staff get the support they need. She ensures that all appropriate staff are properly trained on the medical concerns of our students. Mrs. Benton is exceptionally organized and ensures that every detail is perfect. She is compassionate and patient with staff and students alike and is always calm in any emergency.

Mrs. Benton is a mentor to many of our students and does more than her job description requires. Mrs. Benton exemplifies everything that is great at Patuxent.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
