The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is proud to announce Brian D. Krakower as a recipient of the 2012 NJCTS Children’s Scholarship. Krakower, who will graduate from Fair Lawn 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.
Krakower’s extensive resume is led by his membership in the Future Business Leaders of America organization at Fair Lawn and has been a part of the Fair Lawn Class Council throughout high school. Krakower also was selected to the Spanish Honor Society and was a valuable contributor to the school’s varsity wrestling team. He has worked for United States Gymnastics in Mahwah as a coach and Fair Lawn All Sports as a Little League baseball umpire.
NJCTS congratulates Krakower, who will attend Ithaca 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.
