For the third straight year, Bethel has received the NAIA Champions of Character® Five-Star Gold Award.
This time, the Threshers had a perfect score of 100 points.
Bethel was one of 113 institutions across the NAIA to earn gold status, out of 181 that earned either gold, silver or bronze.
The NAIA announces the awards in the fall for the previous academic year (in this case, 2019-20).
NAIA institutions are asked annually to demonstrate their progress in pursuing “character-driven athletics.”
