Journalist April Towery joined The Sealy News last week as a reporter who will cover education, sports and general assignments.
Towery, 40, studied journalism at Texas A&M University, where she wrote for and edited numerous sections of the student newspaper, The Battalion. She went on to cover executions for The Huntsville Item and served as a graphic designer and copy editor for The Daily Herald in McDonough, Ga., before a promotion to municipal government reporter and, later, managing editor. Most recently, she has worked for The Madisonville Meteor and Community Impact Newspaper in Katy.
Towery grew up in College Station and loves following Aggie sports. She has been recognized by her peers with numerous awards from the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors and Texas Press Association.
