Westmont’s Evan Kramer and Karlie Storkson were honored at a banquet in Costa Mesa on Sunday as recipients of the Golden State Athletic Conference Champions of Character Award. The Award, named for the former GSAC Commissioner, is given to one male and one female student-athlete from each member institution.
Recipients must be at least juniors with a 3.0 minimum grade point average. They must be outstanding in “campus leadership, community service, embracing the five core values of the NAIA Champions of Character Initiative, athletic achievement and future ambition.”
Kramer is a senior economics and business major from Santa Ana with a 3.44 GPA. A Westmont Golden Eagle Award winner, Kramer is president of Westmont’s chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international honor society for economics.
In the summer of 2015, Kramer attended a seminar in Washington D.C. in the Morality of Democratic Capitalism hosted by the American Enterprise Institute.
Kramer earned All-GSAC honors in cross country at the GSAC Championships and led the Warriors to an 18th place finish at the NAIA National Championships. In September, Kramer was named the GSAC Cross Country Runner of the Month.
