A junior majoring in Journalism and minoring in Philosophy, Barnwell was the editor of her high school newspaper her senior year and has interned twice at the Hendersonville Times-News, a daily newspaper in Hendersonville, North Carolina. While a student at Blue Ridge Community College in Flat Rock, North Carolina, she also served as the editor for the Ridge Writer, which is the school’s creative arts and news magazine.

“Being appointed News Editor presents me not only journalistic opportunity, but also a chance to enlighten my overall perspective of how my character will develop through working with fellow editors, writers, and staff,” said Barnwell. “My goal at Western Carolina University is to bring the best out of myself-whether it be on an academic or social basis.”
