Dr Edmonds said that he is looking forward to how Walsh will change the world for the better.

"In today's globalized society, emergent leaders will need to embrace the discomfort and uncertainty of the contemporary moment," said Dr Edmonds. "Delaney has proven time and again that she is capable of pushing through challenging moments to do the extraordinary."

After graduation, Walsh will attend St Ambrose University to earn a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology.
