The Tabor College football team, student body, faculty, staff, coaches and community are mourning the loss of a teammate, classmate and friend.
Brandon Brown, 26, a junior transfer student from Sacramento, Calif., died Saturday evening from injuries suffered in an altercation that occurred during the early hours of Sept. 16 in McPherson.
In a statement from the college late Saturday, President Jules Glanzer said the Tabor community wished to extend sympathies to Brown’s immediate family and many friends during this time of tragedy and loss.
Glanzer called for students and the college community to be unified during this difficult period.
“We gather as one campus to grieve together, support each other with prayer and love, and seek the comfort of the living Christ,” he said.
Counseling services were made available to students through the Tabor College student life office.
A memorial service for Brown was planned for 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Hillsboro Mennonite Brethren Church. The service was planned with the college community in mind, but was to be open to the public.
A Brandon Brown Relief Fund has been established with Emprise Bank at Hillsboro to assist family members with travel and medical expenses.
