"We believe this is a great way to show incoming students to NAIA member institutions that we value them for the character they have already modeled," said Rob Miller, NAIA Director of Champions of Character Initiatives and the chair of the selection committee. "It?s also a credit to our members that they are recruiting students that set such high standards."

"This scholarship honor is both a tribute and a reward to the seniors for how they have lived their lives and the character values they possess," said Larry Erenberger, NRCCUA Vice President for National Projects. "NRCCUA is proud to support young people with the core values of a Champion of Character."
