WBC's Hendrix and Melton Capture Champions of Character Award

Monday, May 7, 2012

Williams Baptist College has recognized the male and female athletes who best represent Champions of Character throughout the year.

The 2011-12 award winners are Karisa Hendrix and Dakota Melton.

They were chosen for displaying five core values: Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Leadership and Sportsmanship.

Certificates were presented to the WBC student-athletes in a ceremony before the first round of the American Midwest Conference softball tournament at Williams.

Hendrix, a former Highland Lady Rebel standout, is a junior from Cherokee Village, majoring in social studies education.

The softball pitcher is the daughter of Kevin and Michelle Hendrix of Cherokee Village.

"Karisa is a bright young lady who demonstrates on and off the field what we desire from our athletes," said Jeff Rider, Director of Athletics at WBC.

Melton will graduate with a degree in Christian ministries in May.

The Mountain Home native competed as a pitcher for the Eagles baseball squad.

He is the son of Theresa Melton and the late Philip Melton of Mountain Home.

"Dakota has been a leader on this campus, representing respect and sportsmanship towards fellow students, professors, and staff," said Rider.
