2022 Honorees

the wulfeck family

The annual Northern Kentuckian of the Year Luncheon has raised over $1 million since its inception for Covington Catholic High School's tuition assistance program. For the first time since 2002, this event will honor not an individual, but a family. The Wulfeck brothers, all four alumni of Covington Catholic, will be honored for their positive impact on the Northern Kentucky community. 

This year's luncheon is especially crucial for our students as the pandemic has kept us from hosting this event for the past two years, directly impacting our budget. The luncheon provides a vehicle for the business community to help hundreds of students experience an education rooted in strong Catholic values and academic excellence. During the 2021-22 school year, 83 students have been awarded $435,000 in financial aid. 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).
