The Northern Kentuckian of the Year luncheon benefits Covington Catholic High School’s tuition assistance program. During the 2019-20 school year, 91 students have been awarded $430,000 in financial aid. Covington Catholic and its alumni positively impact the Northern Kentucky community, and the luncheon provides a vehicle for the business community to support Covington Catholic’s tradition of excellence in education.

The Northern Kentuckian of the Year Luncheon has raised over $1 million for tuition assistance since its inception. This support has helped hundreds of students experience an education rooted in strong Catholic values and academic excellence. For these students, the opportunity to attend Covington Catholic can be life changing and provides a solid foundation for a successful future.

Covington Catholic received the National Blue Ribbon Award , presented by the U.S. Department of Education, in 2016 (previously awarded in 2007).
