Aim. Shoot. Swish! A coach and a player, LISD Super Kid Kingston Verpil wins at it all!

The Plain Elementary third-grader excels academically. However, Kingston also shows empathy and care for others. Through coaching, he helps his classmates with math problems. Equipped with kind things to say, Kingston acknowledges other’s feelings and supports them. He even went so far as to bring his teacher flowers when her dog passed away.

“Kingston is an all around great kid!  He pursues excellence in his school work, but also shows that he cares about his friends and other people,” Jill Cravens, Plain ES third-grade teacher, said.

Clearly devoted to teamwork, Kingston taps into his competitive side with his love of basketball. One day, he hopes to become an NBA player!

What a champ! Congratulations LISD Super Kid Kingston Verpil!
