The Covington Education Foundation has named Polly Lusk Page, a longtime advocate for education, as the organization’s 2019 Person of the Year. She will be recognized during the Foundation’s Hall of Honors celebration 6 p.m., October 9, at The Drees Pavilion from 6 to 9 p.m.

Page was selected for this award in recognition of her ongoing work in Covington and throughout the Northern Kentucky region. She has served as the Executive Director of the Northern Kentucky Education Council for 10 years and will be retiring this month after 46 years in education. 

Polly with son Jamie Lusk, daughter Jillian Gillespie and Jamie’s two daughters.

Page’s success is due to the fact that she firmly believes that it’s the power of key stakeholders working together that maximizes the success for all youth in Northern Kentucky. 

“Ms. Page’s leadership developing the One to One: Practicing Reading and Math with Students program imprints her legacy in Covington Independent Public Schools,’’ said Todd Duesing, president of the Covington Education Foundation. “Her support for critical resources for the students of Covington from cradle to career is the type of inclusive leadership we find commendable in selecting our person of the year.’’ 

Page has been responsible for advancing the vision and strategic direction of the Northern Kentucky Education Council and has extensive experience in education, community engagement, and building community partnerships. Under her leadership the Council has focused on three priority goals for NKY: Every child on grade level in reading and math by the end of 3rd grade, Increase the number of youth who are hopeful, engaged and thriving- Resilient and Ready, and Increase the number of youth and young adults that are prepared for College, Career, and Life. 

During her tenure with the Council more than 3,000 children have been coached through the One to One Reading and Math Program and over 7,000 books were donated to schools through One to One to increase home libraries for children.


She serves as a Board member for the NKY Workforce Investment Board (WIB), NKU Graduate Programs Advisory Board, NKY Pre-K Works Leadership Council, Greater Cincinnati STEM Collaborative Advisory Board, Chair of the Opportunity Youth Response Team, NKY Partners for Health, the Steering Committee of the NKY Chamber GROW Initiative, and the Building Industry Association-NKY Education Advisory Council. Additionally, Page has been a member of the NKY Chamber Business Advocacy Council, the Strive Partnership Executive Committee, the Prichard Committee, and the national Ready by 21 Leadership Team at the Forum for Youth Investment in Washington, DC. 

Page has been recognized for leadership and outstanding contributions to civic education and engagement in KY by The Congressional Conference on Civic Education, the recipient of the 2013 Kenton County Public Library Foundations Mary Ann Mongan Literacy Award, the 2014 Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky Helen Carroll Lifetime Leader in Education Award, and the 2015 Imagining Tomorrow Award for Leadership and Vision from Children, Inc. and most recently she was inducted into the Lloyd Memorial High School Hall of Fame.

She and her husband Ken live in Villa Hills.
