Timothy J. Bennett Scholarship

Timothy J. Bennett was a dedicated police officer with 19 years of service with the Warrington Township Police Department. He passed suddenly in 2009. His most significant job was being a father and planning a future for his son Ian, including a college education.

That passion for providing for his son gave the family the idea of creating a Scholarship that would benefit future young people in Warrington Township and surrounding communities. 

To date, we have awarded over 20 scholarships to students. These scholarships have given students the peace of mind to "focus on what I wanted to do instead of how I would pay for it," according to one recipient.

Stephen C. Plum, Jr. Scholarship

Officer Plum died unexpectedly in May of 2022.  Plum spearheaded Warrington Township's first K9 unit and partnered with K9 Murphy.  

He was fondly known as "K-9 Murphy's human".  Ever since he was a kid, Officer Plum wanted to be a K-9 officer and he was living out his childhood dream.

 

Officer Plum was designated the supervisor of the K-9 Unit, where he and his wife, Nancy, were instrumental in organizing multiple successful fundraisers for the Unit. Plum was more than willing to step aside and let Murphy be the star that he is. Officer Plum earned multiple awards and commendations during his time with Warrington Township Police Department.

The new $2,500 scholarship is named to honor Officer Plum's service, commitment, and leadership to Warrington Township.
