Collaborative Partnerships for the Tourette Syndrome Community
The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is proud to announce David Letts as an honorable-mention recipient of the 2014 NJCTS Children’s Scholarship Award.
Letts, who is graduating from Hillsborough 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.
In his award essay, Letts explained how TS has changed his life for the better. His extracurricular activities reflect an appreciation for his community. Letts was a member of the Debate Club, Film Club and is active in his church.
NJCTS congratulates Letts– who will attend Raritan Valley Community College- 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.
