The Greater Missouri TSA congratulates Joseph Kasprzyk, a 14 year old who just graduated 8th grade at Remington Traditional School in the Pattonville School District. Jospeh swims on the swim team and is a member of the Pattonville chess team. During the Tourette Syndrome Awareness month, Joseph and his friend, Austin, came up with ideas to raise money and awareness. They created a week long event called, Spirit Week – Raising Awareness about Tourette Syndrome.
During the week, each day had a different theme. He also put up posters explaining Tourette Syndrome in his school to raise awareness. The event was a great success!
Joseph hopes continue to bring more awareness and acceptance for all those who live with Tourette Syndrome. Way to go Joseph!
