    Northwest Missouri State University student Amy Bunse is the recipient of the Matthew White Memorial Scholarship for the 2016-2017 academic year.

    The scholarship was established in memory of Matthew White, an agriculture business major at Northwest who died in a 2005 automobile crash after completing his sophomore year at the University. The scholarship was established in 2006 by his parents and Northwest alumni, Steve and Julie White of Savannah, Missouri. Steve is a 1980 graduate of Northwest, and Julie is a 1981 graduate.

    Bunse is a senior animal science and agricultural business major from Cosby, Missouri. She is the daughter of Steven and Carol Bunse.
