Covington Catholic High School named Mike Schlotman as the recipient of its 2019 Northern Kentuckian of the Year award.

Schlotman will be honored on Friday, May 10 at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, beginning with a reception at 11:15 a.m., and a luncheon at noon.

The award program benefits the Park Hills school's financial assistance program. This academic year, more than one hundred Cov Cath students were awarded a total of $463,000 in financial aid.

The Northern Kentuckian of the Year luncheon has raised more than $1 million for tuition assistance since its inception, a news release said.

Schlotman is the executive vice president and chief financial officer for the Kroger Company, and recently announced his retirement after thirty-four years with the company.

Additionally, he serves as chairman of the Kenton County Airport Board, and is a member of the board of directors of the Ohio National Financial Services and the CNBC Global Council of CFOs. The Cincinnati Business Courier recognized Schlotman as an outstanding director for service on the airport board, and he was also named to the 2016 Gatton School of Business and Economics at the University of Kentucky Hall of Fame.

Schlotman is a 1975 graduate of Covington Catholic where he ran track, played football, and was a member of the National Honor Society. He later earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from UK.
