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.”
