The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is proud to announce Katherine M. Muentener as a recipient of the 2012 NJCTS Children’s Scholarship. Muentener, who will graduate from Voorhees High School, was selected for her academic achievement, community service and accomplishments as an individual with Tourette Syndrome – a neurological disorder that affects 1 in 100 children.
Muentener, who in her submission essay termed her experience with Tourette Syndrome as “significant,” has been a part of the Voorhees Key Club, Spanish Club and both the junior varsity and varsity volleyball team as a player and manager. She also has been an active Girl Scout and has volunteered as a summer camp counselor and a trainer at J.W. Tumbles
NJCTS congratulates Muentener, who will attend Monmouth University in the fall, on her achievements and wishes her continued success in her academic and career endeavors.
