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.

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.
