Today, he graduated from Grand River Academy.
At just 2-years-old he faced starvation.
He was adopted by a family in Fruita but, the match didn't work out--- at 17 years old Dangler had moved out on his own.
He worked full-time and attended school.
"I've had some huge journeys of lots of rejection in my life honestly, but from being a little kid from having nothing, now to having everything honestly,” says Dangler
Now, he is on his way to Grand Canyon University in Arizona on a full-ride scholarship with hopes of becoming a U.S. marshal.
He credits his success to his religion, a supportive teacher and his relationship with his girlfriend.
