The Champions Dinner was designed to honor student-athletes and to raise funding for the IU Southeast athletic department. IU Southeast currently ranks in the bottom 10-percent for financial aid provided to its student-athletes as compared to other members of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). This dinner will focus on raising funds to help offset the cost of tuition for student-athletes at IU Southeast. Funds from the dinner will also be used to help provide a great educational experience for our student-athletes.

The Champions Dinner Awards

Awards will be given to the Male and Female Athlete of the Year. The Jim Morris Champions of Character Award, named in honor of former IU Southeast men’s basketball coach and first athletic director, Jim Morris will also be given. This award will be awarded to a student-athlete who exemplifies strong moral character and sportsmanship. We also award the Grenadier Gratitude Award and the Distinguished Athletic Alumni Award at the event.

The Champions Dinner Athletes

One main objective of the Champions Dinner is to reengage former Grenadier student-athletes. The Champions Dinner is a perfect forum for past teammates and friends to get together to tell stories and to relive the glory days of playing college athletics.
