Milton Costell Plaque Ceremony

">Earlier this summer, members of the school district gathered in the Ward Melville High School athletic lobby and natatorium to celebrate the life, achievements and accomplishments of Milton Costell. Three Village was fortunate to have Milton design, maintain and upgrade the building’s swimming pool facilities over a long career. During the ceremony, the district unveiled a plaque to highlight and display Milton’s life and love for our swimming pool. This plaque will be on display so all our past, present, and future swimmers will be able to have Milton’s legacy live on.
