Working in Morehead
Morehead is an excellent town. The college is phenomenal, the local business' like Coffee Tree, HSN, and so many more make that town what it is. We just need a craft store so, so badly. Michael's, Hobby Lobby- anything! Walmart isn't good enough!
I've lived in Morehead my whole life. I've seen it from various positions. First as a child, then as a college student, and finally an adult carving out my own path. Growing up in Morehead was an excellent experience. Safety was never really a concern, there were plenty activities for youth to participate in, and a lake to explore. Morehead provides a sublime college experience with small class sizes, professors who care for their students and the community, and a small amount of night life for the weekends. Post graduation I have found that it is difficult to get a job in Morehead, and I do wish the community offered more activities and resources for citizens of all ages to participate in.
Most of the people are great and friendly (at least in public). It's affordable and rural. Great environment for nature-loving people! Lots of hiking trails and a lake plus small beach. Plenty stores for your everyday needs (Walmart, Kroger, Lowe's, Big Lots, Rite Aid, and more). Lots of good restaurants, including three Mexican ones that are town favorites. There's a local Buffalo Wild Wings for the football fans who wanna watch a game and eat yummy food.
