Adam Gerson – Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School

When Adam Gerson graduated from Ithaca College with a background in computer programming, he assumed he’d go to a tech start-up where he’d engineer groundbreaking software, get stock options and play ping-pong on his lunch breaks. It wasn’t an unreasonable expectation. Before he’d finished college, Gerson interned at a booming tech start-up that promised him […]

Anthony Hambey – Birmingham-Southern College

When you tell the faculty at your liberal arts college that you’re going to replace all of the computers in their offices, classrooms and technology labs, including computers that have years of data and research stored on them, there are basically two options. Be very, very specific, or brace for chaos. Anthony Hambey, vice president […]

Casey Gordon – College of St. Benedict – St. John’s University

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University have separate presidents, separate boards of trustees and separate budgets. But they share the same IT department. This creates a lot of busy days for Director of IT, Casey Gordon, who says a major part of her job is providing students at each location with a […]

Chris Diggs – Columbia Public Schools

Not all school districts tweet things like, “Had a blast geeking on career paths and robots with the 5th graders!” But not all school districts have a STEAM Bus. When the Columbia Public Schools (CPS) coordinator of practical arts had the idea to load a bunch of high-tech educational equipment (think: 3D printers, robotics tools […]

Corona-Norco Unified School District

When it comes to IT, Corona-Norco United School District (CNUSD) is a district of pilots. That’s not a reference to flying; it describes the small-scale, short-term projects that CNUSD experiments with before launching districtwide initiatives. In fall 2016, CNUSD completed its latest pilot program when it launched its MyCNUSD portal. Designed to create personalized user […]

Curt Pederson – University of Portland

Curt Pederson has made a career of turning troubled organizations around.  Now at the University of Portland, he’s gone from being berated with insults about the IT department on his first day to being hailed as a miracle worker. His solution is simpler than you might think. Pederson joined the University of Portland as CIO […]

Dan Castles – Telestream

When he first met Shawn Carnahan and Steve Tilley at a preschool function 22 years ago, Dan Castles says he was just trying to shoot the breeze and keep his sanity around dozens of screaming children. Castles struck up a friendship with the two other fathers and says he quickly learned that Carnahan and Tilley […]

Dan Coldiron – City of Fort Collins

Dan Coldiron’s first job for the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, seems far away from the lead technology role he now occupies. “I was the guy that ran around and got parts for the mechanics when they were working on vehicles,” he says. Having just left Colorado State University in 1984, Coldiron worked as a […]

Daniel Morreale – Hunterdon HealthCare

Daniel Morreale uses an apt metaphor to describe the task of implementing new technologies: It’s a little like building an ocean liner when it’s in the midst of crossing the ocean. The key is to make change while in motion, carefully, efficiently—and without sinking the ship. That’s true from both a technical standpoint and a […]

Emily Nichols – Colquitt County School District

The Colquitt County school district of southern Georgia used to be like most other school districts in the U.S. The county technology department would react to state mandates by installing technology equipment.  Likewise, the county curriculum department would react to these requirements with new software. Mostly, these changes would be implemented without much input from […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
— Katie Patterson, Director of Marketing, Alliant Technologies
