BEST TEAMMATE PROGRAM
In 2013, the Museum, in partnership with Investors Bank and Super Essex Conference (SEC), instituted the Best Teammate Award. Each of the 37 high schools in the SEC selects one student-athlete who is a consummate teammate, promotes team unity, and influences his/her team’s culture in the most positive manner. The Museum proudly recognizes these exemplary “best teammates” with a special award and year-end banquet.
MONTCLAIR STATE PARTNERSHIP
In partnership with various departments at Montclair State, the Museum periodically hosts panel discussions and seminars on topical sports issues. These programs are open to visiting students and the public.
