Warren is a member of the Bridgewater College football and track and field teams, as well as part of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Omicron Delta Kappa honor society and BC United—a peer education and bystander education organization that addresses issues of sexual violence and substance use.

Off campus, Warren has interned with the Orange County (Va.) Circuit Courts, modeled with Maître Models and coached youth basketball. He is an active member of his home church, Orange Grove Baptist Church in Unionville.

Following graduation in May, Warren plans to start his career as a forensic biologist and lab technician.

“I aim to provide justice for individuals who are unable to do so for themselves and establish a stable life centered around catering to the needs of my family,” Warren said.
