East Brunswick High School student wins 11th annual NJCTS Children’s Scholarship award

The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is proud to announce Richard Schorr-Coben as a recipient of the 2012 NJCTS Children’s Scholarship. Schorr-Coben, who will graduate from East Brunswick High School, was selected for his academic achievement, community service and accomplishments as an individual with Tourette Syndrome – a neurological disorder that affects 1 in 100 children.

Schorr-Coben was a member of the National Honor Society as a junior and senior; the National Society of High School Scholars as a sophomore, junior and senior; and last year took part in the National Youth Leadership Form on Law and CSI in Washington, D.C. He also has served as a student representative on the East Brunswick Planning Board and volunteered for U.S. Congressional and New Jersey Assembly campaigns.

Using the moniker “Richard Mainway,” Schorr-Coben also has produced two solo albums, with a third coming out soon. He also has worked as a camp counselor for the Rutgers University Zimmerli Art Museum.

NJCTS congratulates Schorr-Coben, who will attend Muhlenberg College in the fall, on his achievements and wishes him continued success in his academic and career endeavors.

Since 2001, the NJCTS Children’s Scholarship Award has been awarded to more than 200 outstanding high school seniors in the state of New Jersey who have excelled in their schools, communities and lives – representing themselves as excellent advocates for Tourette Syndrome.
