Support Staff



Sarah Sankey • Marketing & Event Director 701-252-3397

Hello! I was blessed with the opportunity to join the St. John's Academy staff in August of 2020. I have a background in marketing and advancement and am excited to bring new ideas to the Academy. I moved to Jamestown with my family in the summer of 2018 when my husband accepted a position at the University of Jamestown. We have three boys attending St. John's and have loved being a part of this school family. The education the students receive here is second-to-none and the Christ-centered environment that is weaved throughout their day makes this school one of the best in the state! Please email me if you have any questions about the Academy or would like a tour of our wonderful school! 

Pam Perleberg • Advancement Director • 701-252-3397

I am very excited to join the St. John’s Academy and St. James Basilica families and friends as the Advancement Director to further the mission of the Parish. I have spent the last 15 years in Fargo working in development for nonprofits and found the career path very rewarding knowing you are making a difference in the lives around you. Having grown up in this community, it has been my goal to return and be close to family and friends. Being able to use my experience to advance the school and the Parish in my hometown is a blessing. I am looking forward to meeting or reconnecting with everyone involved with building a strong future for the students and their families. Please reach out anytime to have a cup of coffee!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

As the administrative assistant I have the privilege of meeting and greeting many of the St. John's Academy student's families.  I am a native of Minneapolis, MN.  The marriage of my husband of 10 years is what brought me to Jamestown, ND.  Most of my working career was spent in the Minneapolis, MN area in the field of sales. In my time at St. John's Academy I have found the arena of young student education to be the most fulfilling.  In my spare time I enjoy getting together with family, golfing, skiing, gardening, and going on long hikes with my dogs.
