MARTIN, Tenn. — Josh Matthis, of Milan, is the 2016 recipient of the Nick Dunagan WestStar Leadership Scholarship from the University of Tennessee at Martin’s WestStar Leadership Program.

Dunagan, co-founder of the WestStar Leadership Program and UT Martin chancellor emeritus, established the scholarship to benefit a UT Martin student who demonstrates proven leadership skills and displays further leadership potential. Preference is given to those students who display high academic achievement and have a record of community or university involvement.

Recipients are selected each spring by the WestStar board of trustees and announced at the program’s graduation banquet in June.

Matthis is the son of Brad and Jennifer Winberry and nephew of Jack Matthis, of Jackson, a 2013 WestStar graduate.
