Celebrating a Decade of Impact at the Arete Louisiana Summer Social!



We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the guests who attended the Arete Scholars Louisiana Summer Social! Your presence made this ten-year celebration of providing life-changing scholarships to children across Louisiana truly special.

The evening was highlighted by a captivating Q&A session with the Zoller family, who shared their inspiring journey of raising six children, all beneficiaries of an Arete scholarship. Their story exemplifies the profound impact that access to quality education can have on a family and community.


The event also provided a wonderful opportunity for our supporters to meet and connect with Arete families, students, school leaders, and alums. Like Riley Cryer, Arete's 2023 Graduate of the Year, and Edome, our 2024 Louisiana "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" essay winner. Hearing firsthand about their experiences and successes was a powerful reminder of the difference we are making together.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to empowering Louisiana's youth through education. We look forward to many more years of making dreams come true!
