Champions of Character
Bryan College has been named an NAIA Champions of Character institution for 2003-04, the second consecutive time, the NAIA has announced.
Initiated in 2000, the Champions of Character program recognizes institutions that provide on-campus programming related to the values of respect, responsibility, integrity, servant leadership and sportsmanship. Bryan also was awarded this national recognition in 2003. In addition, the Bryan women's volleyball team was named the Appalachian Athletic Conference Champions of Character winner in November.
Rob Miller, director of the Champions of Character Initiatives for the NAIA, said, "Because of the commitment of your institution and other NAIA members across the country, we are making a positive difference and changing the culture of sport."
Bryan Athletic Director Dr. Sandy Zensen said, "This award is an additional confirmation that the Bryan athletics programs are in step with the college motto of 'Christ Above All.' Our coaches and student-athletes have long embraced these character traits because they are part of the way they live out their faith on and off the field of competition."
