United States Olympian Jacob Dalton has received a 'Key to the City of Fernley'. This is the first honor that the Fernley City Council and Lyon County Board of Commissioners have bestowed to an individual in the 11 year history of the City of Fernley.

Dalton, who also qualified to compete in last summer’s World Championships, was a third generation Fernley resident before his family moved to the Reno-Sparks area to better pursue his advancing gymnastics career.
His parents, Tim and Denise Dalton, later bought his gymnastics club, Nevada Gymnastics, in order to help continue his training.
“We are so proud of Jake Dalton,” said Mayor Goodman, who also taught his parents at Fernley High School. “There are a lot of little girls and little boys looking at him and saying I want to be like Jake Dalton,” the mayor continued. “Yes, he’s an American hero and he is truly a role model for the people of Fernley.”
