Dr. Kenneth G. Townsend (shown here with his wife, Vicky) has been named the new director of the Association of Christian Schools International (ASCI) Northwest, serving Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. Dr. Townsend assumes this position with over 29 years of experience in Christian schooling and 30 years as Chaplain, Colonel in the United States Air Force Reserve.
