Patty Lansink is the new superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Sioux City. Lansink has served as interim superintendent since July when Dr. Dan Ryan became president of Dowling Catholic High School. She has served as assistant superintendent since 2015.

“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.

"We have already seen the competence and good work of Patty Lansink as interim superintendent of schools,” says The Most Reverend R. Walker Nickless, bishop of Sioux City. “She brings many talents to her position; she is a woman of faith, well respected among her peers and is very excited about the future of Catholic schools in our diocese.”
