2016 Hall of Fame Dinner - OUR BIGGEST YET!

On Wednesday, May 19, 2016, the NTU held our 18th Annual Hall of Fame Dinner. It was our most successful Hall of Fame Dinner yet!   We had close to 300 attendees and raised $50,000 for scholarships for our members, their children, and the students of Newark!

For the first time, we also had the NTU Member Recognition Awards, where 14 members were recognized for their contributions to Newark's students, school staff, and community.

And we inducted Thomasina Lemon into the NTU Hall of Fame!  

Check out our pictures from this terrific event, and we hope to see you there next year!
