Cron was born with Down Syndrome and graduated from the RISE School at the University of Alabama before attending Holy Spirit since kindergarten.
The ClemsonLIFE program is a two-year basic program that offers academics, along with independent living skills and employment opportunities.
Cron was among six students chosen throughout the nation to begin the program in the fall. Dalton has been anxiously awaiting the news of his admission.
A surprise assembly attended by his parents, fellow students, and staff of Holy Spirit was organized on March 20, where he was presented with his acceptance letter. He is the son of Laura and Bob Cron of Tuscaloosa.
