The Oregon Crusaders announces Board Expansion

The Oregon Crusaders is excited to announce the expansion of its Board of Directors to include Linda Kidwell and Michael Peacor, two incredible contributors to the OC family. In our strategic effort to achieve our mission to provide education through performance in the areas of musical and visual ensemble artistry, we continue to look to those who can broaden our organization’s expertise and perspective. Linda is the mother of two 2018 alumnae, including a 3-year vet, and is an accounting professor who has done extensive research in ethical decision-making and student honor codes. Michael is a parent of a former member, has served as the head cook for OC, and is a manager in high tech. He is also an accomplished musician, having performed in violin, viola, and voice. 

“The Oregon Crusaders have provided my daughters with wonderful opportunities to perform at the highest level, experience tremendous personal growth, and challenge themselves beyond their perceived limits, all while fostering a strong bond and a family feeling for so many other members and staff.” said Linda.  “I am serving on the Board of Directors to help the Oregon Crusaders move into the future with optimism, integrity, and excellence.”

“Involvement in musical arts is an amazing and transformative experience, and OC delivers more than what I expected.” said Michael.  “I’m joining the board to do what I can to assist with a culture of continual improvement.”

“We are so fortunate to have these incredible members of the OC family join our board.” said Dr. Phil Marshall, President of OC’s Board of Directors.  “Linda and Michael’s deep knowledge of the drum corps activity and its value to young people are the perfect background for helping us steer the organization forward into the future.”

Our board expansion continues. OC is seeking additional professionals to join us with business, fundraising, marketing, HR and other experience. Check out our board page and let us know if you’re interested in joining our team. We have many years in front of us to provide a phenomenal, life-changing experience.
