About Owen Monke

First year Feather staffer, Owen Monke, ’21, plans to pilot fighter jets for the U.S. Air Force after he graduates, earning a degree in engineering from the Air Force Academy. Monke’s passion for aircraft developed as he mastered piloting remote control aircraft at his parents’ summer camp and at his home in the Clovis foothills. Disassembling and repairing various devices has led to his passion for engineering. Monke’s commitment to service and involvement with the Peoples Church youth group (“The Chase”) led him on a mission trip to Malta during the summer of 2017. While in Malta, he assisted disabled people by repairing facilities and led soccer games for a youth sports outreach. Monke views his first year on the The Feather as an opportunity to practice his writing skills, photography, videography and editing.
