The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is proud to announce Harrison D. Kaminsky as a recipient of the 2012 NJCTS Children’s Scholarship. Kaminsky, who will graduate from Randolph 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.
Kaminsky, the founder of NJCTS’ Teens4TS blog, has been an assistant captain on Randolph’s Public Forum Debate Team, a member of the varsity tennis team, a copy editor and writer for his high school newspaper and a classroom aid at his local Hebrew school. He also is an avid musician, playing the guitar, saxophone and piano. Kaminsky has worked for Lashen Electronics Inc. as the Director of Marketing and Search Engine Optimization, as well as the Harbor Hills Day Camp as a counselor.
NJCTS congratulates Kaminsky – who is undecided on where he will attend college in the fall; he has been accepted to Drexel University, Rutgers University and the University of Pittsburgh – 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.
