Parents: Bill and Kelly Chapman
School(s) attended K-8: St. Peter’s
Favorite place on campus: I enjoyed being outside on a nice day, with my friends. I enjoyed this area because it was beautiful and relaxing, especially during the spring time.
Activities at Pius X: I participated in Pius X MD club, and I was part of the leadership team. I was also involved in Students for Life.
What is/was your favorite class at Pius X, and why?
I have enjoyed all of my science courses at Pius because I love being hands on with labs and dissections. All of my science teachers did a great job of teaching the content, but also having hands on activities, that make learning more fun and interesting. I also enjoyed all four years of Spanish, because all the teachers make learning fun with all of the games and interesting projects.
How has your faith impacted your education, or how has your education impacted your faith?
Pius has been very special in my faith life, because they offer so much more than just a Catholic education. They provide us with many opportunities to grow in faith on retreats and prayer groups. I was blessed to be able to attend SEEK and it was an incredible experience! I also love that when someone’s family is suffering, we are able to come together as a Pius family and pray for them.
What are you most proud of about your time at Pius X?
I am most proud of keeping up with my work. Out of all four years of high school I only received one ARP.
Where are your plans after high school (college, military, job, etc.)? What do you plan to study?
I plan on attending the University of South Dakota, with a major in Health Science and a minor in Spanish.
