The scholarship, established by Northwest alumni Steve '80 and Julie '81 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. Matthew was a third generation Bearcat. His mother, father and grandparents, Lloyd '49 and Marilyn Fulderson '47 White, all met as students at Northwest.
The Matthew White Memorial Scholarship, established in 2006 through the Northwest Foundation, benefits students who major in agriculture at Northwest, with preference given to a high school student from Savannah or North Andrew high schools.
