We are so thankful for those who continue to support the amazing students of ClemsonLIFE! Thank you Ruby's Rainbow! Our first acceptance package has made it!! Dalton Cron will be attending ClemsonLIFE in the fall and could not be more excited!! He is wanting to learn to live on his own and have his own business or job when he graduates. He is SUPER social, so he dreams of working somewhere he can meet lots of people and make new friends, like a coffee shop or a little restaurant or something. One of his favorite things to tell his parents is, "I will live by myself and you guys will have to learn to let go." HA! He was the basketball and football team manager, sang in the choir and was on the honor roll.
He was even elected homecoming king and one of his friends said,"“I know Dalton is an incredible young man who lights up our school hallways, makes friends quickly and he keeps them forever. He is a friend that knows loyalty and support is not something he just receives, but is what he gives to every single friend he has. Dalton was not elected homecoming king because of his disability, he was elected by the entire school because they believed he represented each and every student in our school and because he represents our school mission statement.”
Oh my heart!! We are SO proud of you Dalton and so honored to be a part of our journey!! CONGRATS and we can't wait to see what your first year at Clemson brings!!!

We are thrilled to have Frankie joining the ClemsonLIFE family this fall! #gotigers #clemsonlifefamily #JustLikeYou Project: Just Like You is proud to share Frankie's story! He is an athlete with the Special Olympics South Carolina.
Frankie is 19 years old. He enjoys playing sports, he is a DJ and loves spinning music, hanging with friends, playing PS4.
He competes in Basketball, Swimming, and Golf. His practice and training consist of work with his personal trainer which enables him to be a healthy weight and encourages healthy eating choices as well. He loves to compete and work. He is dedicated to his work in the weight room. He has loved sports his entire life. His mom, Debbie, writes, "He sings like Darius Rucker, swings like Derrek Jeter, shoots like Kobe Bryant!"
The family celebrates his victories by "[Promoting] positive atmosphere with praise and encouragement to continue to do what [he] loves to do!"
Frankie is diagnosed with Down Syndrome.
Frankie brings confidence and a positive attitude to each task and his energy is contagious.
Debbie wants new parents to know "I wish I would have enjoyed my time with him as a baby instead of worrying about his future."
"Frankie is a DJ, has a personal trainer and is in terrific shape and he has spoken all over the country about Bullying and how to treat others with respect. He will be a freshman in the ClemsonLIFE Program August 2017. He is smart, handsome, funny, likeable, social and happens to have Down Syndrome. It doesn't define him, it is a part of who he is."
Frankie, you continue to pull others up through your speaking. You continue to inspire. Now you are off to college this fall to pursue whatever you want to do! There are no limits, and you know this!
Frankie is #JustLikeYou
