Each year, in the month of November, a call to the public to nominate deserving candidates will be made, with a nomination deadline set for December 15th. A committee, composed of the members of the Kenton County Ethics Commission, will review the nominations, identify four deserving individuals by January 15th, and forward their names to the Kenton County Fiscal Court for consideration.
On or near the anniversary of the County’s founding on January 29th, the Kenton County Fiscal Court shall signify their approval of these choices by resolution. Thereafter, the pictures of the four honorees, along with a description of their contributions to the community, shall be prominently displayed in the Kenton County Administration Building until the next class of Kenton County Pioneers is identified. The four Kenton County Pioneers will also be recognized in video and print for their accomplishments.
