Joel Bradford, Board President

Joel Bradford joins the Eugene Concert Choir administrative team after a twenty-five year career in education. Joel was a long-time teacher in local classrooms before entering school administration. He finished his career as the superintendent of the Marcola School District. During that time he was an advocate for rural school districts both locally and at the state level. From 2012 to 2014, Joel served as the Chair of the Lane County Superintendents’ Council.

A long-time resident of Eugene, Joel moved here after graduating from the University of California, Riverside with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science. After entering teaching, he continued his education with a Masters of Education from the University of Oregon. Joel completed work for school administration through the College of Education at the University of Oregon.

Joel has been associated with the Eugene Concert Choir organization for many years through his wife, Jolene, who has sung with ECC for over thirty years. In his spare time, you might find Joel out on the ball fields of Eugene playing masters softball or just enjoying a few moments of playing guitar or mandolin for the fun of it.
