The MAVERICK Speaker Series is honored to host visionaries and trailblazers who, like Senator McCain (P‘03, ‘04, ‘07, ‘10, G‘10), have blazed their own trails in the world.

Just as Senator McCain led with integrity and an independent spirit, PCDS stands as a beacon of educational excellence among independent schools in Arizona and beyond. PCDS shares the late Senator's devotion to nurturing character-driven leaders of tomorrow who will work collaboratively, especially with those who think differently, in order to achieve true progress in their chosen field.

Through the MAVERICK Speaker Series, Phoenix Country Day School is honored to welcome visionaries who — in various fields and ways — are following in the late Senator's footsteps by making history, just as we aspire for our own graduates to make a positive impact on the world around them.
