KCSD Mourns the Passing of Former Board Member

It is with great sadness that the Kingston City School District informs our community of the passing of former Board of Education trustee, Reverend Arthur Coston, Sr.

Reverend Coston proudly served on the KCSD school board from 2005-2008 and 2010-2016.  He was relentless in his passion for the children of this district. “Reverend Coston was a wonderful representative of this community.” said Dr. Paul J. Padalino, KCSD Superintendent, “When he spoke at our (board) meetings, you always listened. When he had something to say, you knew it was important”.

While a member of the board of education he served on the Visitation Committee (chair), District Wide Safety Committee and Audit of Curriculum Committee.

Rev. Coston will be missed by all who knew him and will be remembered for his devotion to the education of the children of our community.
