Madison Harrington is an Aerospace Engineering and Religious Studies Major at Iowa State University. She was exposed to aviation through her dad who flew F-16s and now the Boeing 777 for FedEx. Both of her parents supported and encouraged her to get her private pilot's license in high school. 

At Iowa State, Madison is working with a team of undergraduates developing an Open Source fixed wing UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) for supporting future research and recreation. Additionally, she is a tutor for the Academic Success center and involved in the Women in Science and Engineering Program. She is a recipient of the Iowa State University Scholarship for Competitive Excellence, and has served as a Squad Leader and a Platoon Sergeant in Naval ROTC.

As a Brooke Owens Fellow, Madison will be hosted at Mojave Air and Space Port to continue her interest in aviation and innovation.
