The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is proud to announce Mickey Avenoso of Bridgewater as an honorable-mention recipient of the 2014 NJCTS Children’s Scholarship Award.

Avenoso, who is graduating from Bridgewater-Raritan High School, was selected for his academic achievement, community service and accomplishments as an individual with Tourette Syndrome – an inherited, misunderstood, misdiagnosed neurological disorder that affects 1 in 100 children.

Avenoso’s award essay was titled “Controlling What I Can with My Attitude.” He is a member of the National Honor Society, German Honor Society and is a varsity hockey player.

NJCTS congratulates Avenoso – who will attend The College of New Jersey- on his achievements and wishes him continued success in his academic and career endeavors.
