The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is proud to announce Jesse J. Magliulo as a recipient of the 2012 NJCTS Children’s Scholarship. Magliulo, who will graduate from Old Bridge 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.
Magliulo has been an active participant in Old Bridge’s junior varsity baseball and basketball teams, as well as its varsity football team. He also has been a peer leader; a member of the Buddy Team, which works with children who have special needs; and taken part in the Can Jam Club and the flag football team. Magliulo has worked at Arirang Hibachi Steakhouse and Sushi Bar in Sayreville.
NJCTS congratulates Magliulo, who will attend the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University 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.
