The Diocese of Sioux City announced today that Patty Lansink has been chosen for the position of superintendent of Catholic Schools. Lansink has served as interim superintendent since July when Dr. Dan Ryan took the job of president at Dowling Catholic High School in West Des Moines, IA.

Lansink has been principal at St. Rose of Lima Catholic School in Denison, IA since 2011, and has also served as assistant superintendent of the Diocese of Sioux City since 2015. Lansink will search for a new principal to replace her at St. Rose of Lima school in the near future.

"I am honored and excited to continue my work as Superintendent of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Sioux City. After working as a principal at St. Rose of Lima for the last 7 years, I have been blessed to work with an amazing group of school administrators and am eager to continue our work together to provide an outstanding Catholic education for our students," says Lansink.
