Joe Phillips – Kansas City Public Schools

Balloons, deflated balloons and rocks. These are the three types of people in an organization, says Joe Phillips. “Since the direction you’re always trying to go is up, you want people who are balloons,” he says. “You want employees who are aligned with the overall vision and actively working toward the upward push.” Deflated balloons, […]

Jose Miguel Piquer – University of Chile

In 1985, Jose Miguel Piquer helped make history: He was part of a team that sent the first email in Chile—between the University of Chile (where he was then a student) and the University of Santiago. The pithy but witty message? “If this arrives, let’s open a bottle of champagne.” It did in fact arrive, and […]

Patricia Ciuffo –Touro College

It can be as simple as clicking on the wrong email to spark a cyberattack, Patricia Ciuffo of Touro College warns. That’s all it took in a recent hack in Lake City, Florida, that shut the local government down for days and resulted in a $460,000 paid ransom. Yet forewarned is forearmed to Ciuffo, Touro’s […]

Tom Cranmer – Richland School District Two

Richland School District Two may not have landed on primetime, but its own domestic version of ABC’s Shark Tank show is creating an educational frenzy of sorts. Dubbed R2 Innovates, the innovation incubator allows educators to support and fund promising new practices aimed at solving multifaceted problems. Around 28,000 students and faculty receive broad-based community […]

Rahoul Ghose – ECMC Group

At the nexus of business, technology and education is where Rahoul Ghose said he always wanted to be—and that’s exactly where he has landed. Coming on board as CIO of Minneapolis-based ECMC Group last summer, Ghose assumed responsibility for overall IT strategy and delivery—in addition to helping evolve the culture of the IT department—at the […]

Shawntee Cowan – Duncanville ISD

How enlightening it is to understand public education from the level of teacher to administrator. So says Shawntee Cowan, a former music teacher at the Duncanville, Texas, Independent School District for the past five years and, since May 2018, chief technology officer. “So often our technology was outdated and, as a teacher, I would get […]

Tonjia Coverdale — Central State University

It was the fall semester of 2018 when Tonjia Coverdale stepped into a freshman English composition class at Central State University in Ohio. The room was bustling with activity, with students taking turns sharing the short stories that they had written with their peers using iMovie on iPads to create a video illustrating their creations. […]

Maurice Tyler – Cecil College

It’s been a long time since you sat at a desk, scribbling notes as a professor expounds about anything from grammar to shop math. It may even be your first time at a desk since you were in high school, when time management, paying bills, raising a family and finding a new career were not […]

David Wolford – Baugo Community Schools

When coach Marty Moyer’s barn burned to the ground, his wrestling team and a legion of his Indiana neighbors rushed to his aid to rebuild the structure as quickly as possible, working many hours without complaint. In times like these, it’s nice to know people and places like this still exist, says David Wolford, the […]

Chris Smallen – Lenoir City School District

Some students are using 3D printers to retrofit vehicles for disabled individuals—installing brake and gas pedals on steering wheels, for example, or ensuring that seats are molded in such a way that occupants can safely remain upright. Others students are working with local businesses to develop their online marketing, or they’re helping fellow students when […]

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
