The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is proud to announce Joseph P. Flanagan as a recipient of the 2012 NJCTS Children’s Scholarship. Flanagan, who will graduate from the Seton Hall Preparatory 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.
Flanagan has taken part in numerous extracurricular activities at Seton Hall Prep, including being a member of the Film Club, Ski Club, Video Gaming Club and the Strategy Club. He also has spent some of his spare time volunteering at the St. John’s Soup Kitchen in Newark. Flanagan has worked at Five Guys Burger & Fries, Michael’s Arts & Crafts and this summer will spend significant time as a counselor at a summer camp.
NJCTS congratulates Flanagan, who will attend Fairfield 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.
