Stumpf earned his bachelor’s degree in secondary education with a teaching certification in social studies and physical science from Kansas State University. He then earned his master’s degree in 1999 also from K-State.

He and his wife, Kim, have three children – Maci, 15; Grant, 7; and Kennedy, 3.
