Curtis A. Carver Jr. – University of Alabama at Birmingham

Put yourself in the shoes and lab coat of a renowned scientist intent on curing Parkinson’s disease. So beckons Curtis A. Carver Jr., who’s on a first-name basis with such researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. And while Carver’s profession is directing info-tech, not biochemistry, he wants to be a partner in that […]

M. Dee Childs – Texas A&M University

Studying philosophy years ago, as an undergrad at Indiana University Bloomington had its moments, M. Dee Childs recalls. Only not enough reason for her to earn a doctorate in the subject. “I realized I could never compete intellectually with history’s great classical minds, and eventually I found I just wasn’t interested in spending my life […]

Chris Cummings – Klein Independent School District

Wide-eyed children looked on, as did a couple of teachers, as Chris Cummings went about upgrading a computer laboratory as part of his duties as information technology director at Pineywoods Community Academy in Lufkin, Texas, back in 2009. Formerly a Naval electronic warfare technician who had criss-crossed the globe while carrying out sensitive functions, Cummings […]

Stephan George – Jackson Public Schools

After growing up in Jackson, Mississippi, public schools, and working for them in various capacities for more than 15 years, Stephan George was moving on and ready to tackle a new challenge. But then the district superintendent hit him in what he called his “weak spot.” Come back, he said; do it for the children. […]

Will Thompson – Clarendon College

There’s an adage about the Texas Panhandle, often attributed to country singer Robert Earl Keen, which says the land there is so vast and unencumbered, you can look out into the distance and see the back of your own head. But inside the halls and classrooms of Clarendon College, an hour east of Amarillo, the […]

Jeremy Davis – Capistrano Unified School District

A chemistry teacher doesn’t begin teaching safe chemistry at the end of the semester. That lesson starts before the first Bunsen burner is placed under a test tube. The same principle applies for introducing children to the internet, states Jeremy Davis, who has served the 49,000-student Capistrano Unified School District in Orange County, California, since […]

Nick Pitre – South Louisiana Community College

Nick Pitre knows what it’s like to juggle an info-tech livelihood with the pursuit of higher education. To begin with, an IT boss can be like a first responder, being summoned to the scene of a web malfunction that respects no hour of the day. Then, almost being forgotten about until the onset of the […]

Drew Lane – Shawnee Mission School District

In “Inception”, the 2010 sci-fi thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio, the protagonist is forced to navigate a series of dreams, each more involved than the last. While that might seem like a strange analogy for an IT initiative, Drew Lane insists his school district shares something in common with the special effects blockbuster. “What we’re doing […]

Jagan Gudur – Regis University

When you think of a typical college classroom, a very particular image comes to mind: the professor standing at the front, with rows of students sitting attentively. For all the ways in which technology has transformed learning, this dynamic remains the default setting at most universities. As chief information officer of Denver’s Regis University, Jagan […]

Raj Murthy – Pima Community College

Now, more than ever, it’s the consumers who are in control, reviewing everything from restaurants to movies to mortgages, through services like Yelp and Google Reviews. Ask Pima Community College (PCC) CIO Raj Murthy, and he’ll tell you education ought to be no different. “Students should never be stuck with a course they don’t understand […]

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.
