Early Life & Childhood

Being born in a very poor coal camp to a family stricken by poverty, Dale knows firsthand the struggles of people who grow up in those environments. As a child, he greatly enjoyed reading and drew inspiration from what he read for pursuing a better life. This drive is what led him to engineering school.

Dale attended the University of Wyoming and received BS, MS, and PhD degrees in the field of engineering. Using his stellar education, he soon went on to acquire employment with the United States government. As a senior scientist for the US Navy, he developed missile guidance and submarine silencing technology. For his service to his country, he was inducted into the University of Wyoming Engineering Hall of Fame in 2004, and has been honored as one of the top ten engineers in the federal government by the National Society of Professional Engineers.
