What is a Maverick?

“Webster defines a Maverick as, “an independent individual who does not go along with a group or party.” We believe this definition fitting of many teens today, as well as ages past. Throughout history, it has been confirmed that being a “Maverick” has resulted in phenomenal success within their respective endeavors and should be recognized accordingly.”
