CLARK — Students in Tara Filippini’s fourth grade class at Valley Road in Clark have begun a research project aimed at trying to nominate the next candidates of the New Jersey Hall of Fame. Each student has chosen someone of importance that was either born in New Jersey, or has lived here for at least five years. The fourth graders are actively searching online resources to help learn more about each person.

If chosen, they may have the opportunity to meet their New Jersey Hall of Fame candidate. (Photo courtesy of Clark Public Schools)
