The Messenger 05.01.13 The deadline is approaching for application for the Nick Dunagan Leadership Scholarship. Dr. Dunagan established a scholarship to be awarded to a dependent of a WestStar alumnus whose student is enrolled at UT Martin. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide financial assistance to a student who has proven leadership skills and/or displays leadership potential. The amount is $1,200 annually ($600 each semester). According to the scholarship criteria, a sophomore is preferred, but a junior or senior may apply. Freshmen are not eligible. Preference is given to those students who have displayed a high level of academic achievement and who have a proven record of community/university involvement. Eligible students must have a 2.75 GPA after their freshman year and a minimum of 3.00 GPA as a junior/senior. The WestStar Board of Trustees will select the recipient. The deadline to apply for the fall semester is May 14. For more information or an application, contact WestStar coordinator Virginia Grimes by phone at (731) 881 7298 or by email at email@example.com.
