2022 Harry Cheatham and Sandy Otec Vest

Harry Cheatham, affectionately known as "Hacker" to family and friends, graduated from St. Pius X High School in 1964.  He played football, basketball, and baseball for St. Pius.  He and his late wife, Judy, who is also an alum, had 5 children. He served in the US Army from 1967-1970.  He had a successful career in the banking industry and has served as the President of our Alumni Association for over 2 years. Since retiring Harry has consistently represented the Alumni of St. Pius X at many of our events - golf tournament, car show, trivia night, athletic events, career day - to name a few.

Sandy Vest graduated from St. Pius X in 1978. Her son, Andrew and daughter, Gabrielle are both St. Pius X alumni as well. Sandy has served in many capacities since graduating from St. Pius X, most recently she served 2 terms on the Board of Directors. Sandy is an Insurance Agent for State Farm is a member of our Business Alliance program. With her office located in Festus, MO she is always giving back to her community and her alma mater. From Sandy:  ‘Truly the reason I love St Pius and support it is because of the opportunity my parents gave me years ago.  We don’t have to say how long!  Ha.  As the oldest of 7 and a daughter of a father who worked as a truck driver and a mother who stayed at home to care for us, I feel incredibly blessed that they were willing to sacrifice so much to provide an education for me and all of us whose focus was on our Catholic faith.  I am passionate about St Pius’ mission to provide a quality, faith based education to all those who want to be here, regardless of whether they can afford it. I support the school as a business owner, alum and parent of alums because I believe it is imperative we continue to do God’s work here on this earth.  St Pius is doing just that! I am blessed and grateful I can help in this mission.”
