During his senior year of high school Bobby Dean wasn diagnosed with Hodgkin’s and underwent radiation and chemotherapy. The treatment later led to an acute lukemia. Bobby chose Chico State as his college of choice and joined a fraternity, Beta Theta Pi. He had the best time of his life that year at Chico State and made lots of wonderful friends that still keep in touch with his family. After the Beta’s lost their chapter at CSUC the criteria was broadened to ensure a recipient could be awarded each year. His father, Bob Dean, is an alumnus of the College of Business. Perry Clifton was a Beta and the first recipient.
