Trinity Named a 2014-15 NAIA Five-Star Institution

Each year the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) recognizes excellence in character-driven intercollegiate athletics programs with the Champions of Character Five-Star Institution award. Trinity was among the NAIA institutions that received the Five-Star designation for 2014-15.

The Five-Star award is a part of the NAIA’s Champions of Character initiative that measures each institution’s commitment to the five core values of character training, conduct in competition, academic focus, character recognition, and character promotion. Institutions earn points based on these five key areas and receive Gold, Silver, or Bronze status. Based on a scorecard system, Trinity earned the Silver award.

Throughout the 2014-15 school year, Trinity’s athletics teams were involved in various activities that promoted the Champions of Character values. Coaches and student-athletes received training in and promoted Christ-like conduct on and off the playing field. Teams participated in outreach activities such as conducting clinics and camps, organizing food drives, promoting cancer awareness events, participating in community service projects, serving the underprivileged, and going on international sports mission trips. In addition the teams were academically focused and maintained a high grade point average.
