Meet Admissions & Marketing Coordinator Vania Asmus

As our school community continues to grow, Sioux Falls Lutheran School is pleased to welcome Mrs. Vania Asmus as our new admissions and marketing coordinator. Mrs. Asmus will work alongside our director of community engagement, Mrs. Megan Baedke, to assist prospective families through our admissions process, contribute to our marketing team as a graphic designer, and help with hosting a variety of SFLS events.

Mrs. Asmus studied Graphic Design at the State College of Florida and Business Marketing at the University of South Florida. She and her husband, Adam, have two beautiful dogs, Blaze and Scooby. They are part of the close-knit community at Memorial Lutheran Church, which is led by Pastor Aaron Asmus who also happens to be her father-in-law.

Check out the Q&A below to learn more about Mrs. Asmus, including what she looks forward to about working with prospective families as they seek to find the right school fit for their children. 

What appeals to you about working in a school setting?
Growing up, I always thought I’d end up working with kids as a teacher, but college threw a curveball, and I ended up with degrees in graphic design and business marketing. After college I worked for a short time in advertising, but it just never felt right. Life’s funny, though–it brought me back full circle to the school scene, and I totally credit that to a bit of divine intervention from God. I feel lucky to be working at this awesome school, surrounded by amazing teachers and staff. It’s like everything fell into place in the coolest way.

Working in a school setting allows me the opportunity to connect with students through a lens of faith. Witnessing their growth and individual perspectives is inspiring, and emphasizing the amazing potential within each student is something I truly enjoy. Engaging in their educational journey allows me to contribute to their development academically, personally, and spiritually. The school environment, guided by God, becomes a space where I can create a positive impact in the child’s future.

What do you most look forward to about working with prospective families as they seek a school home for their student(s)?
I’m thrilled to guide prospective families considering Sioux Falls Lutheran School on their faith-based education journey. What excites me most is introducing them to our school’s unique benefits and values. Beyond academics, we’re committed to integrating Christian principles into every aspect of a student’s education, fostering not just academic growth but also character development. I’m eager to share the enriching experiences that come with our faith-based approach and guide families through the opportunities for spiritual growth, moral development, and a strong sense of community.

Building connections with families who share our values is a priority, and I look forward to discussing how our school encourages a sense of purpose, empathy, and shared values that extend beyond the classroom. Ultimately, I’m excited about helping families discover how Sioux Falls Lutheran can provide a holistic education that nurtures the mind, spirit, and character of their child within our faith-based framework.
