Dalton successfully passed his Eagle Board of Review and has been recognized with a Court of Honor ceremony following completion of his service project at the Bald Ridge Marina Chapel on Lake Lanier.
Dalton’s Eagle Project consisted of dismantling and removing a pair of outdated storage facilities, constructing a new storage building along with new bench seating. His project also included refurbishing the Chapel Cross with new foundation timbers, as well as sanding and repainting the fifteen foot tall steel structure. Bald Ridge Marina Chapel serves as the site of weekly outdoor worship services hosted by Cumming First United Methodist Church from May through September.

In the summer of 2008 Dalton was elected Crew Leader for an 11-day, 90-mile expedition at the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, which included scaling a number of peaks in the Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range to a height of 12,500 feet.
Dalton is pursuing a pre-med curriculum as a freshman at Emory University with a double major in Biology and Music Performance. He is currently a member of both the Emory Wind Ensemble and Emory Symphony Orchestra. Dalton is a 2011 International Baccalaureate Diploma Recipient, Georgia State Science Olympiad Gold Medalist and attended Governors Honors.
