In an effort to encourage school children to become their best and persevere through these challenging times, we’ve launched the Areté Video Series!

“Areté” is a greek word that means “the act of actualizing one’s highest and best sense of self, with a moral excellence of character.” As the cornerstone of the NJ Hall of Fame and our mission, we’re promoting Areté through weekly videos featuring inductees, offering messages of hope and inspiration.
