Classroom addition namesakes Msgrs. Dawson and Vap visit new addition (with a surprise)
The two were former superintendents at Pius X, and were instrumental in the early years of success at the school.
They toured the new classrooms that are a part of the addition that bares their name: the Msgr. James D. Dawson Learning Center, and the Msgr. Ivan F. Vap Industrial Arts Center.
While they were touring, they were surprised by teacher Don McKee with a historical artifact, an old electric jig saw. In-scripted on the handle … the letters V-A-P.
