William (Bill) Hobbs – Hood College

Cyberattacks have become almost a daily aspect of life, both for individuals and for large companies and governmental entities. For CIOs serving academic institutions, the rise of remote learning has made the issue an even more pertinent and critical aspect of their mission. Case in point: myriad technical updates to infrastructure and technology CIO Bill […]

Tom Benton – Sierra College

Throughout his career in IT and education, Tom Benton has connected students to information, but never was the delivery of education tested as much as during the COVID-19 crisis. When Sierra College in Rocklin, California, closed its campuses during the pandemic, Benton—the school’s chief technology officer—credits three initiatives for saving the day. Microsoft Teams + […]

Braden Bonner – La Salle College High School

Even with the La Salle College High School campus idled after the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, Braden Bonner was skeptical about a suggestion on how to use the school’s technology. “I was just thinking about keeping students learning and teachers teaching, and it sounded like the students wanted me to install […]

Brook Conner – Hawaii State Department of Education

In 2017, when Brook Conner came to work at the Hawaii State Department of Education, he knew his work was cut out for him. A major tipoff was that the department was using antiquated Lotus Notes, in some cases on SunOS—an operating system replaced in the ‘90s. Soon, he had filled a white board with […]

Brian Betteridge – Hill Top Preparatory School

The air is charged with excitement. Kids tightly grip video game controllers, transfixed by monitors displaying showdowns between Nintendo gaming icons like Mario, Donkey Kong and Pokemon’s Pikachu. The characters in the kid-friendly video game don’t knock each other out, just off the stage and out of bounds. And all of this is happening … […]

Sherri Yerk-Zwickl – Campbell University

Every time CIO Sherri Yerk-Zwickl looks at the recently completed student union at Campbell University, it reminds her of the progress being made in the school’s IT Department. That includes many things, from 74 upgraded classrooms to a new phone system to the new Information Technology Advisory Committee that oversees tech across the three campuses. […]

Don Wolff – Portland Public Schools

It’s been a long time coming, but students in Oregon’s Portland Public Schools—particularly those in the Northeast Albina District—will finally get the technology they deserve, thanks to the passage of the largest capital bond in the state’s history last November. During the past century, the city endured its fair share of racial strife, and Portland […]

John Ellinger – Bowling Green State University

It’s been years since John Ellinger’s been to class, but there’s no doubt he and his IT team were tested in 2020 at Bowling Green State University. In his more than 30 years of IT experience at the university level, he’s built events management systems from scratch and guided cloud migrations for campus operations and […]

Albert Stadler – Crowder College

Albert Stadler remembers the day in 2019 when he got a phone call from nearby Crowder College. It had been hit by a crippling ransomware attack. In no time, Stadler, then the CIO at Missouri Southern State University, was on his way to help assess the damage. Stadler’s reputation as the “go-to guy” in the […]

David Heineck – La Salle Catholic College Preparatory

Enter to learn, leave to serve. So the students are taught at La Salle Catholic College Preparatory in Milwaukie, Oregon. A private co-ed high school under the auspices of the Archbishop of Portland, its curriculum is demanding for students drawn from nearly 100 grammar and junior high schools throughout the Portland, Oregon, metro area. La […]

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.
