Hometown: Vermont, IL
Future Plans: Work in Public Relations

Kate Richardson & Colten Bradford

When the editor-in-chief of The Journal, the student-run newspaper at the University of Illinois Springfield, graduated, Colten Bradford knew he had to step forward. He took on more work to make sure the weekly paper was published on time. Bradford earned his bachelor’s degree in communication from UIS in 2011 and will graduate with his master’s degree in fall 2013. He has a public relations job waiting for him at The Energy Education Council in Springfield.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
