In addition to sports, Sturm was a member of Natural Helpers, student council, the prom committee and was a manager for the girls' soccer team. He enjoyed his four years at Spring Hill High School, but the summer between his freshman and sophomore year was a hard time for him. His father Robert Sturm Jr. passed away from cancer. When he was dealing with long sport seasons, he thought about his father to pull him through. "My dad went through worse," he said. "The doctors only gave him a few months to live, and he died a year later," Sturm said. If Sturm was having academic problems, he would apply the same principle to it. "It was really a tough time for me, but seeing his courage really inspired me to do things in my community and school," Sturm said. He indicated that his Mother Laura, sister Sarah, and his friends have been a positive force in his life.

His father was a lieutenant for the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, and his grandfather Robert Sturm was the Chief of Police for the Mission, Kan. Police Department.
