The Shine On scholarship is modeled after the life and attitudes of Dean Allen. It was established by the Allen Family and Rotary in 2015 to honor the life of Dean Allen, who died in a fatal skiing accident when he was a senior at Chelan High School. Dean had a unique gift of rising above his own struggles to overcome adversities and inspire and help others. This scholarship is to honor his Shine On spirit of determination and hope by encouraging other students who have overcome adversities.
Who should apply? College bound students (college, university, community, trade or technical schools) that demonstrate the special shine on qualities that Dean Allen exemplified in his short life.
*An ability to overcome life struggles and adversities with optimism and determination.
*Courage, honor, compassion and a commitment to help others overcome their adversities.
