Freed-Hardeman University again earned the Champion of Character Five-Star Institution Award for the 2021-22 school year.
According to the NAIA, “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.” 157 schools across the NAIA were named as Five-Star institutions, with winners further acknowledged by gold, silver, or bronze medals. FHU was granted the gold medal for scoring at least 90 out of 100 possible points.
Athletic Director Jonathan Estes preaches the importance of the acknowledgment, saying, “The Champions of Character program directly connects our teams and student-athletes with our mission as a University. In addition to striving for championships, we want to impact those that we come in contact with through service and demonstration of the core values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Sportsmanship, and Servant Leadership.”
