Public Information Assistant

I have already had the pleasure of meeting many of you, but for those I have not gotten around to yet: Hello! My name is Jessica Coston and I started April 16 as the new public information assistant for Onslow County Schools. I will be working in the Community Affairs office under Brent Anderson.  

I am coming to you all from a background in journalism. I graduated with a degree in public relations from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2016, and worked for GateHouse Media as a multimedia copy editor and digital specialist until finding my way to OCS last month. 

My family has deep roots in Onslow County, so I am very happy to be here and serve a school district that has served my family for many years. 

I am sure I will be known to a lot of you as "the new Suzie," at least for a while, but I look forward to getting to know all of you in the coming months. I know I have some big shoes to fill and I am excited to get started telling the story of OCS!

If you need me or just want to chat, I am in the Community Affairs office and can be reached at or 910-455-2211 X 20302.
