The Maxwell Scholar Program honors Dr. Malcolm Maxwell and his wife, Eileen, and their commitment to Adventist education. Dr. Maxwell was the first alumnus to serve as president of PUC, and he had the longest tenure at 18 years. Dr. Maxwell, son of famed Seventh-day Adventist author Arthur S. Maxwell, graduated from PUC in 1956 with degrees in theology and biblical languages. He completed his master of arts in systematic theology at Andrews University and earned his doctorate in biblical studies at Drew University. At Drew, Maxwell was honored as a Rockefeller Fellow and Drew University Scholar.
Eileen Maxwell's commitment to Adventist education was tremendous. At PUC, she worked in the records office as a graduation analyst and later in the education department as a credential analyst. As first lady of PUC for nearly two decades, she was a constant support for official college functions. Eileen's generosity and caring spirit also made her a valued member of the community.
