Susan Nahmensen has served LESA for 16 years as Scholarship Program Director, as COO, and as CEO for the past ten years. Sue’s passion for Lutheran education stems from the positive, life-changing impact the family’s parish elementary school, local Lutheran high school, and Concordia University System had on her son and family. She sees Lutheran schools as a partner with the church and with families from all socioeconomic, ethnic and faith backgrounds. Sue brings 27 years of experience in corporate business management and holds the Christian Stewardship Associate Certification, Health Insurance Associate Certification, has completed the Nonprofit Services Center Women’s Executive Director Leadership Academy, and has pursued nonprofit management classes at local universities. She is a member of Salem Lutheran Church in Affton, and feels blessed to serve a mission that assists Lutheran schools in their ministries to help raise children to be all that God made them to be.
