KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The LSU Shreveport athletic department has been recognized as a Five Star Award winner in the NAIA Champions of Character Scorecard for the 2016-17 academic year. LSUS was one of 66 institutions who achieved Gold status this year joining Texas A&M-Texarkana as the only members from the Red River Athletic Conference to garner the top honor.

"I'm very honored and excited for our Athletic Department to receive the highest recognition for the Champions of Character program," said LSUS Athletic Director Lucas Morgan. "We put a lot of emphasis on running a high character program and I think this validates it. We will continue find new ways to develop our student-athletes and staff and continue to live by the five core values."

Every year, each NAIA institution and conference demonstrates their progress in pursuing character-driven athletics. The Champions of Character Scorecard measures growth in training, promotion, conduct in competition and commitment in five key areas with a possibility of 100 points. Institutions can be recognized as Champions of Character Five-Star Institutions at three different levels: Gold (90-100 points), Silver (75-89 points) and Bronze (60-74 points).

This year 183 NAIA institutions earned the Five-Star Institution Award, up from 171 institutions last year. Included were 66 institutions at the gold distinction level, 76 at the silver distinction level and 41 at the bronze distinction level.
