Chancellor Dan Jones was on hand to present each graduate with their diploma. Several academic deans were on hand as well, including Dr. Ken Cyree, Dean of the School of Business Administration and Douglass Sullivan-González, Dean of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, who recognized Rohde-Moe for her outstanding achievements in the classroom. Rohde-Moe graduated with honors in three and a half years with degrees in Managerial Finance and Economics as well as graduating from the Honors College.
Prior to receiving her diploma, Chancellor Jones presented Rohde-Moe with a Taylor Medal, the highest academic honor at the University of Mississippi, awarded to students in the top one percent of their school.
