The McLendon Speaker Series is an educational lecture series produced by Greensboro Day School. The series features national and local experts speaking on current topics in the fields of education and parenting. All speaker events are free and open to the public.

The McLendon Speaker Series is a longstanding tradition at GDS thanks to an endowment established by Charles McLendon, co-founder and first board chair of Greensboro Day School.
