Bethel Athletics Earns Gold Status In Champions of Character

Posted
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — For the seventh straight year Bethel University was recognized as a Champions of Character Five-Star Institution. Bethel is one of 157 Five-Star winners in the nation.
 
Institutions are measured on a demonstrated commitment to Champions of Character and earn points in character training, conduct in competition, academic focus, character recognition and character promotion. Institutions earned points based on exceptional student-athlete grade point averages and by having minimal to no ejections during competition throughout the course of the academic year.
 
Seven full-time Mid-South Conference members received honors for the NAIA Champions of Character. Bethel, Campbellsville, Cumberland (Tenn.), Freed-Hardeman, Pikeville and Tennessee Southern received gold standings.
 
Lindsey Wilson received bronze honors.
 
Bethel Director of Athletics Brad Chappell stated. “I am so proud for our coaches and student-athletes to receive this recognition for the 7th consecutive year. It is something that we start planning before school starts each year. It is the collective effort of our entire department to be visible and impact the surrounding area. The real reward is knowing Bethel Athletics is working towards the common good but receiving official recognition from the NAIA that we do it as good as anyone is pretty nice too.”
 
Under Chappell’s guidance as a senior associate athletic director and now director of athletics, BU student-athletes have logged more than 30,000 hours of community service.
 
The MSC was also recognized as a Five-Star Champions of Character Conference. 
 
2021-22 Five-Star Conference Award Criteria
 
• Established Champions of Character Conference Committee.
 
• Conference has a conduct in competition oversight committee composed of a minimum of three members.
 
• At least 50% of members institutions must receive the NAIA Champions of Character Five-Star Institution Award.
