Koster's Kloset honors generous teacher (video)

“He’d give you the shirt off his back, and then convince you to do the same.” That’s how students and staff describe Tommy Koster, a Spanish teacher at Ginn Academy who passed away unexpectedly in 2015.
Since then, those closest to him at the school have been working on a way to ensure his legacy of generosity will live on forever at Ginn Academy and in the community. To honor the late teacher, a group of students and their advisor created a donation center in the school called “Koster’s Kloset,” which provides students and families with some necessities they might not have at home, like hygiene items, dress shoes, household items, and healthy food options.
