I have a need for people to be able to select multiple selection from a dropdown but I would prefer not have all 15 options displayed until click a down drop.  Does this capability exist on an HTML form?

Do you mean that you want the user to click the drop down and select one option,  then click the drop down again and select another.  Or to have the drop down like a list where they can select the options they like at once?

Insert Drop down in your form
Doubl Click it
Select Allow Multiple Selections (Yes)
Give the drop down a name
Add the values

Now when you browse the form,  the drop down will show only one value.  The user can select the value then click the drop down button to scroll and then select the second value that he/she likes ...and so on,  then they submit the form.

Best regards
