Northern Kentucky University also has funded two separate insurance policies that will provide $45,000 a year through 2018 and $38,500 a year through 2022.

Votruba will earn total cash payments of at least $371,000 annually his first several years.

Votruba told The Kentucky Enquirer (http://bit.ly/Tlh7W9 ) the salary reflects the two classes and his work with state and national groups seeking to improve K-12 education and college readiness.
