Features August 2020

Bill Dorminy – Point University

It’s a unique institution of higher learning on the Georgia-Alabama line. Point University—Atlanta Christian College, pre-2011—has several times as many students learning remotely than the 700 on campus. A diverse student population too, many of them adults from far away, but united in Christian faith. Such an operation can’t be run on good faith alone, […]

Bob Fishtrom – Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District

In the backyard of the tech industry, one California school district’s tech is undergoing a huge transformation. From the fiber and Wi-Fi connections making a network possible to the laser projectors making learning vivid, Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District is upping its game with the guidance of an IT veteran who’s focused on […]

C. Edward Watson – Association of American Colleges and Universities

Despite the lofty language that infused our founding documents, history has proven that not all people have been treated equally in this country—especially with respect to education. That’s where the Association of American Colleges and Universities comes in. “Our goal is to help our member institutions provide the best quality of learning while ensuring all […]

Carl Fong – Orange County Department of Education

If you think you’re a grizzled tech veteran because you can recall the beeping and pinging of a dial-up internet connection, say hello to Carl Fong. Fong got hooked on technology because of Pong, a rudimentary video game with a solitary black dot bumping and booping its way across a screen, redirected by digital “paddles” […]

Diego Ferrer – Chicago Department of Aviation

When he was growing up in Venezuela, Diego Ferrer used to get excited when he saw an airplane fly overhead. Little did he know that he’d one day be in charge of keeping airline passengers safe and improving the traveler experience at one of the largest airports in the world. Ferrer is the CIO for […]

Located in Allentown, Pennsylvania, HNL Lab Medicine is one of the country’s leading full-service medical laboratories, providing testing and related diagnostic services to physicians, hospitals, long-term care facilities, employers and industrial accounts through its 60 regional patient centers. When Harvey Guindi joined HNL as its new CIO in 2013, that legacy was a big reason […]

Joey Poarch – Poarch Thompson Law

The year 2020 has been a homecoming for Joey Poarch after more than 20 years on the road as a technology consultant and leader. Now chief information officer at the immigration and adoption law firm founded by his wife, Christine Poarch, he no longer spends his days and weeks going from city to city. Instead, […]

Lisa Spencer – Prince George’s County Public Schools

Getting Prince George’s County Public Schools fully into the digital age has been a long process, but one that picked up speed as the 20th largest public school district in the U.S. found its schools closed because of the coronavirus pandemic. As Lisa Spencer tells it, she’s helped integrate the school system’s tech for more […]

Matt Ball – ParkMobile

How long have you waited for this night out? The dinner reservations are set, the sitter has arrived, and the concert tickets are in hand (or on your phone, more likely). Let’s hope you won’t wait as long to find a parking spot: circling city blocks for a vacant space, passing filled garages and fumbling […]

Michael Walthour – LaPorte Community School Corporation

Heading into the 2019-2020 school year, Michael Walthour’s goal was somewhat broad, but critically important: to make things easier for the faculty and students of the 11 schools in the LaPorte Community School Corporation. But nothing could prepare him for what came next—or how challenging it would be: helping the district navigate the unprecedented COVID-19 […]


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
