Stump says he was impressed with the school’s dedication to career-related courses.

“Overall impressed, just had a really good conversation with the student council leaders and they were sharing with me their personal experiences and their journey of how they found St. Pius and how they feel like it’s preparing them for the next step in life,” Stump said.
