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 “So often our technology was outdated and, as a teacher, I would get […]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 […]

Matthew Peskay – KIPP SoCal Public Schools

Think of it as a sort of “Shark Tank” for the primary and secondary education set. Teachers and staff come before a board, pitch their product and if the “investors” are excited about it, receive $1,000 to implement it. Down the road, if they meet stated goals, they receive another $500 stipend. And if their […]

Scott Pierce – Kingsport City Schools

He may not get out of the data center as much as he’d like, but when seeing firsthand the effects of his role during occasional classroom visits, Scott Pierce can further vindicate his long-ago decision to shift careers from teaching to technology. “It’s very rewarding to see an economically disadvantaged child who has never traveled […]

Claudio Zavala – I am Claudius LLC

Belting out Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long” in front of thousands of people was a liberating moment for Claudio Zavala. Being a shy guy—and by his own admission not the greatest singer—it was a bold move for this drummer-educator to take center stage with wild abandon—a moment that he says changed his career path forever. […]

Brendan Post – Earlham College

Brendan Post is ensuring that learning will not be old school at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. “We are stepping outside what was done to see how today’s student engages,” says Post, the school’s chief information officer and IT director. From classrooms to dorms and the dining hall, few areas will remain untouched by high […]

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.
