Tickets are now on sale for the Team Kenton Foundation's Outstanding Graduate Ceremony on April 4, 2019 at the Newport Aquarium.
Your ticket includes a private viewing of the Newport Aquarium, unlimited appetizers and soft drinks and an opportunity to honor an outstanding Kenton County alumnus, Lt. Justin Wietholter from Scott High School. In addition, last year's Outstanding Graduate winner, Doug Pelfrey, will be on hand to present Lt. Wietholter with the award.
Lt. Wietholter serves as a patrol supervisor and SWAT team commander for the Covington Police Department. In 2015, Justin was one of two Covington officers recognized as "Police Officer of the Year" by the NKY Police Chiefs Association after saving the life of a 9 year old girl by rescuing her from a house fire set by an arsonist. Justin also serves as a leader in the Fraternal Order of Police, holding the positions of Vice President of Lodge #1 and State Lodge Trustee. Justin holds a BA in Criminal Justice and a MA in Executive Leadership & Organizational Change, both from NKU.
“Justin Wietholter is a rising star in local law enforcement,” wrote Rob Sanders, who nominated Lt. Wietholter for the award.
Tickets for this event are $75 and will benefit the Team Kenton Foundation, which is an independent non-profit organization created for the purpose of raising funds for, and increasing community awareness of, issues that will directly impact student learning and educational opportunities at all levels throughout the Kenton County School District. More specifically, tickets sales will go toward funding college and career certifications for students who want to take the tests, but may not be able to afford the fees.
