Accomplishment: Jason Ginsberg is involved in marching band as a section leader, and is involved in both his synagogue and youth groups.
Key to Awesomeness: For the last six years, Jason Ginsberg has held an annual car wash to benefit the “Ronald McDonald House” of New Brunswick, raising thousands of dollars for this worthy cause. He is a section leader and plays the Baritone in the high school marching band. During the school year, he continues with his musical abilities by being the principle trombonist and section leader for the Honors Wind Ensemble, Orchestra Winds and Jazz Band. Jason Ginsberg has also been in the New Jersey Regional Band and a member of the New Jersey All State band for the past two years. He is a member of the high school's chapter of the National Honor society and was recently elected as the President for the coming 201-12012 school year. Jason Ginsberg also volunteers at his local synagogue, which includes office work, the 4-H fair and is a youth shofar blower. He is so successful because of his nature of caring for others and knowing how important it is to volunteer and help those in need. These linked with his unyielding determination in everything that he does lead to the perfect winning combination.
