Scott Costello created the local Gainesville magazine HOME: Living in the Heart of Florida, which features many positive aspects of our lives here in North Central Florida. He is passionate about his work, and everywhere there is an event to sponsor or help others~ you can find Scott. The Gainesville community benefits from Scott's relentless fundraising efforts and participation in countless activities to benefit others. His innovative magazine showcases all that is good. It is a great joy to read through his magazine and learn about the local people that work so hard to make our community so great. His hard work and dedication show through in the high quality of his publication- and I feel that he is sharing with us all the greatness there is around us, and it allows us to know about these things and get involved ourselves! Scott is definitely a major, significant contributor to the Gainesville community- through both volunteering and through his publication. He has a kind and generous spirit that is unsurpassed. He is one awesome, talented, and successful model citizen!
