Thank you God for allowing your servant, Dwight Benning to impact and motivate many people. His legacy as a stellar and unequivocal social justice advocate helped to marshal national civil rights policy advanced during the LBJ administration. Dwight gave of his time, treasure and talent to the students of North Division HIgh School and was a volunteer coordinator of multiple student college tours, community support member for experiential learning opportunities at various art venues, theaters, and academic events. He was a big man whose kindness, smiles and wide range of thoughtfulness will long be remembered as one "Who Was True to the Blue". Thank you for walking with me during my service at North Division High School. Janie R. Hatton 1st National Principal of the Year

While I have only known Dwight for a short time, he was a great mentor for the track and field community. He always took time to train and inform new officials. His smile was contagious as well as his hearty laugh. My deepest condolences to the family.
