Collaborative Partnerships for the Tourette Syndrome Community

The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is proud to announce Michael Zarro as an honorable-mention recipient of the 2014 NJCTS Children’s Scholarship Award.

Zarro, who is graduating from West Orange 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.

Zarro’s award essay was titled “Brick Wall” and contained thoughtful insight into his life with Tourette Syndrome. His list of extracurricular activities reflects leadership in athletics and a commitment to serving the youth of his community through sports.

NJCTS congratulates Zarro – who will attend East Carolina University- 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.
