College of the Ozarks was named the recipient of a Silver Five-Star Award, when the NAIA announced the 2013-2014 Champions of Character Scorecard winners this week. The NAIA named 168 institutions from across the nation, each of which was measured on a demonstrated commitment to their Champions of Character program. Over the past academic year, institutions earned 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. Congratulations to College of the Ozarks' coaches and teams for their commitment to character in their sport, the classroom and the community!
