The Kosts are a family with a whole community on their side.

Four-year-old Tyrone resident Nathan Kost was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when he was just six months old and many in the Tyrone community have been offering a hand to this little boy and his family ever since.

The TAHS 2019 Homecoming Court did their part to help this local family this fall.

Nate is a very special little guy and we are so happy to have so many people from the community care about him”

— Nathan's mom Ashley Kost

In previous years each homecoming nominee would choose their own individual platform to raise and donate money to, but this year the Homecoming Committee decided to switch things up a little bit. The nominees of the 2019 Homecoming Court held a meeting to chose one cause to donate to.

¨We feel that if the girls are working towards the same goal it means more than working for different platforms,” said homecoming co-adviser and TAHS math teacher Michelle Marasco.

Several charities and causes were nominated and the girls voted on the platform they would support this year.

The Kost family was the final choice. They felt as though it was more personal if their cause was local and the Kost family is well known throughout the community.

“I personally know the family…It’s very expensive for all of his treatments and for all of his devices. This summer he was sent to Panama for stem cell transplant and they do that every year so the money donated will help with that expense,” says homecoming co-adviser and TAHS math teacher Tiffany Smith.

Nathan Kost is just like an ordinary little boy he likes fire trucks, trains, motorcycles, and every sport. He is happy, determined, and smart.

¨He steals everyone´s heart who gets to know him,¨ said Nathan’s mom Ashley Kost.

The homecoming court couldn’t think of a more deserving candidate for this year, a little boy with so much heart and spirit.

The Homecoming Court raised a total of $4,200 in just three days for the Kost family.

¨Nate is a very special little guy and we are so happy to have so many people from the community care about him,¨ said Kost.
