Kate Richardson & Colten Bradford

When the editor-in-chief of The Journal, the student-run newspaper at the University of Illinois Springfield, graduated, Kate Richardson knew she had to step forward. She took on more work to make sure the weekly paper was published on time. Richardson earned her bachelor’s degree in communication from UIS in 2011 and will graduate with her master’s degree in fall 2013.

Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
