Arlo Barnette

Student, Musician, and Journalist in Morehead, Kentucky

Listen to my music

I'm Arlo Barnette, a second-year senior majoring in English and Spanish with an Honors scholarship in tow. I've worked at Morehead State Public Radio as a journalist and audio engineer for four and a half years, and am active in several bands. I'm a delegate for the Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition, and ardently urge you all to join the recently reinstated Earthwise Eagles of MSU!

I was happily homeschooled for the majority of my young life. I spent junior and senior years at Rowan County Senior High School, where I was desolate, angry, and barefoot. My parents live on a goat farm in Bath County, and my younger sister, Ellen, is an art major at MSU. My girlfriend of five years is Zoey Barrett, who plays music with me in two groups.

I spent last semester interning at a radio station in Chile, and hope to land a job as a foreign correspondent for NPR, PRI, or the BBC. I graduate in Spring 2018, and will then pursue a doctorate in comparative literature. Hola, folks!!
