CCA Administrative Staff

Call to Action

Administrator – Mr. Clark Ballard


My undergraduate degree is from the University of Alabama in 1985 with a B.S. in Music Education. My graduate degree is from The Citadel in 1991 with a M. Ed. In Secondary Administration. I started teaching in 1985 as a band director and taught for 7 1/2 years in the public education system and then moved to administration in Christian Schools. I love working with children and watching the Lord catch fire in their lives. It is a blessing to observe them truly understanding what it means to begin and then develop their personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. I married an incredible woman Jill Morton Ballard in September 1993. We have 2 great children, Evan (born in 1998) and Emily (born in 1999). I enjoy spending time with my family, working in the yard, and visiting other family members that are out of state.

Administrative Assistant – Mrs. Shauna Townsend



My undergraduate degree is from Central Missouri State University in 2001 with a B.S. in Journalism.  I received a minor in Music, which was, and has always been my true love.  I enjoy teaching kids new songs, motions to songs, teaching Bible stories, verses, and God’s Word through music.  I give private piano lessons, and it is a joy to share my musical gift with others.  God blessed me with a wonderful husband, Eric, in the Spring of 2002.  We have two beautiful boys, Keaton (born in October of 2003) and Kaiden (born in October of 2007).  I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my boys play sports, scrapbooking, playing the piano, and visiting with friends.

Athletic Director – Mrs. Kathy Brown



I joined CCA in 2001, in its 2nd year, as the music teacher upon moving from the city back to Osceola.  Previously, I had been teaching K4-12th grade music and band at Grandview Christian for 16 years.  I was also the Athletic Director at Grandview for 5 years and then continued on while teaching at CCA as the AD for Grandview for an additional 5 years.  I also taught piano at GCS, but after moving to CCA I began teaching piano lessons here.  I have been teaching piano lessons since the mid-1970’s.  I started the band and bell choirs at CCA and each year the children performed a major Christmas musical and went to music competition.  Due to a bad car accident, I had to give up being the music teacher at CCA in 2010, but have maintained being the Athletic Director since 2006.  I continue to teach piano and I am a Osceola HS graduate (1969).
