Owen Ley

Grade: 12

Position: Editor-in-Chief

My name is Owen Ley and I am proud to be the Editor-in-Chief of The Voice this year! I transferred to PV last year and started out as a Copy Editor. Much to the staff’s dismay, I am somewhat of a huge k-pop stan. I also like reading, writing, and sketching. I work as a cashier at CVS and a busser at a Mexican restaurant. My favorite articles to write are editorials and features. I plan to major in industrial design in college.

Maggie McGovern

Grade: 11 

Position: News Editor

My name is Maggie McGovern and I am a junior at Perkiomen Valley High School. I am honored to be the News Editor of PV’s The Voice because journalism is something I am extremely passionate about! I love being able to provide students with “the facts” and present them from the most unbiased perspective possible. After all, education is often the key to democracy and success! Outside of the newspaper, I am involved in Mini-THON, Speech and Debate, Student Government, the School Board (as a representative), LINK Crew, NHS, and tons more! In my free time, I like to read, write, watch movies, spend time with friends, and cuddle with my puppy!
