Hello fellow Grenadiers! My name is Joel Stinnett.
I was born and raised in Louisville and attended Saint Xavier High School, where I was the news and features editor of The Xavier News. Upon graduation I attended Western Kentucky University and was a sports writer for The Herald.
Unfortunately, Bowling Green, KY was too small of a town for me, so I decided to transfer to Manhattan College in New York City. While in New York I got my real estate license and began selling apartments in Brooklyn. Later I became a publicist and brand manager for a small record label. I loved the energy of NYC. I still miss walking amongst its skyscrapers and thinking about my day as I listened to the sounds of the city. But what I truly miss are the uniqueness of its people.

IU Southeast has its own unique people and contagious energy and it is our job at The Horizon to tell its story.

But we need your help. If you know of an interesting person, topic, or event on campus that you think The Horizon should cover please email me at We are the STUDENT newspaper of IUS and we want to tell your story.
