Savannah native Bunse receives scholarship in memory of Matthew White

MARYVILLE, Mo. - Savannah native Nathan Bunse, a junior at Northwest Missouri State University, is the recipient of the Matthew White Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship, established by Northwest alumni Steve and Julie White of Savannah, is in memory of their 20-year-old son. Matthew White, an agricultural business major at Northwest, was on track to graduate in 2007, but died in a car accident in 2005.

Bunse, the son of Steven and Carole Bunse, is majoring in agricultural business with a minor in precision agriculture. He plans to return to the family farm after graduating from Northwest.

The Matthew White Memorial Scholarship, established in 2006 through the Northwest Foundation, benefits students who major in agriculture at Northwest. A scholarship of at least $500 is awarded each year, with preference given to a high school student from Savannah or North Andrew high schools.
