More Stories

I've been fortunate enough to write a lot for other publications while studying journalism at Hillsdale. Whether it's writing for our school newspaper or local publications back home, telling unique stories is always fun and rewarding. If you have a story for me to tell, you can share your idea by email at callitownsend@icloud.com. You can also read some of my other stories below:

Automotive News

This was a story I helped write called "Rural and Ready". It's about how rural areas are building infrastructure for the future of electric vehicles.

Blue Water Healthy Living

Blue Water Healthy Living is an online magazine that covers local news and promotes the values of Faith, Family, and Freedom as well as showcasing the Blue Water Area, its people, issues, and surroundings. I write about the Blue Water Area sports teams, as well as other fun, local features.

DBusiness

I got to write a cover story for DBusiness magazine about five billionaires (and their families) who are from Michigan! It was a lot of fun researching their lives and legacies. I learned one of them even bred hamsters as a child!

Hillsdale College Collegian

The Collegian is Hillsdale College's campus newspaper, which also happens to be the oldest in Michigan! I was the Sports Editor there, and I covered men's basketball, baseball, and cross-country. I also wrote about local businesses, campus news, and even a few op-eds (including one about popcorn!).

Port Huron Times Herald

The Port Huron Times Herald is the local newspaper for St. Clair and Sanilac counties. Before heading off to college, I had the opportunity job shadow, and even write a couple articles there.

Sanilac County News

I wrote a few articles last year for our local newspaper, the Sanilac County News, about the need for sports and how to keep training, even with canceled seasons. I wanted to encourage younger athletes to not give up.

The Detroit News

I can't say the automobile industry is something I'm most passionate about, but, this was my first opportunity to be published in The Detroit News! I wrote about my thoughts and research on the impact of EVs on Michigan's economy.
