Golfers in Warren County gathered this weekend to support a heartfelt cause, remembering a local man and honoring his legacy through an educational scholarship.

Over one hundred golfers came out to the Jackson Valley Golf Course for the 3rd annual Colten Brown Memorial Scholarship Golf Scramble.

The event, organized by Colten’s family raises funds for a Penn State scholarship in his memory.

“Today is the third annual Colten Brown Memorial Scholarship Golf Scramble," stated Cody Brown, Warren County Assistant District Attorney. "We created the foundation in memory of my brother Colten Brown who passed away at the age of twenty-four from Covid.”

The scholarship focuses on Penn State College because Colten, a proud graduate and lifelong learner, loved everything about it.

The school's mascot also visited the event, highlighting the strong bond.

“The legacy that Colt would have left behind, we are doing it through a scholarship," stated Brian Zeybel, Former Warren County Sheriff. "It’s going to allow somebody else to get that knowledge, to get that skill that is going to help them be someone like Colt.”

It was a day filled with laughter and memories, especially for Colten’s family.

“It is so good to see so many people out here, honoring Colten" said Jillette Crowl, Colten’s cousin. "He would have had a blast.  I know he’s watching, and just having a chuckle at everybody’s quirks and mishaps.”

The Brown family hopes to further Colten’s legacy by providing more scholarship programs and rewards for local high school students in the future.
