J. Dean McAllister Bursary Application
History of J. Dean McAllister
As a child, Dean loved hunting and fishing. He was a son, grandson, brother and a friend to many but at an early age in life, Dean became involved with drugs and alcohol. It has been proven that when drugs and alcohol are taken with this disease, it will delay the progression of recovery and cause the psychosis.
In 1985 Dean was diagnosed as having paranoid schizophrenia and had been hospitalized most of the time.
Unfortunately, on September 16, 1989 at the age of 25, the disease got to be too much for Dean and he died by suicide.
The 2021 J. Dean McAllister Bursary Awarded was presented to Ali Alsaidy from James M. Hill High School
