Adrian Garcia – Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD

In 1987, just months after becoming Hidalgo Independent School District’s lone computer coordinator, 22-year-old Adrian Garcia surveyed the IT landscape and did what had always felt like second nature: he dreamed of making things better. At a time when 10-megabyte Compaq Desktops were considered state-of-the-art and the internet was still the niche domain of plugged-in […]

Eric Jimenez – Artesia General Hospital

For years, whenever a patient was referred by Artesia General Hospital (AGH) to one of its 16 outpatient clinics, hospital staff would have to print the patient’s information from an electronic medical record system (EMR) and deliver it, by car and foot, to the next clinician. After the checkup, new data would be added to […]

Esteban R. Velez – Classic Hotels & Resorts

Whether he’s on a business trip or just vacationing with his young family, Esteban R. Velez will look up the hotel’s info-tech director and ask him or her to lunch. “My kids hate me for that,” the jovial Velez tells Toggle. “But in this line of work, it’s essential that we all share ideas. The […]

Chris Hartley – Dunhill Homes

It’s odd, muses Chris Hartley, how the housing industry seems a stride or more behind the rest of the business world when it comes to harnessing technology. A home, after all, is most everyone’s biggest investment. Smart would be the homebuilder who uses info-tech to attract and service buyers, especially those of a new generation. […]

Frankie J. Jackson – Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District

Five years after Frankie J. Jackson set out to make Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District an IT exemplar in the Lone Star State, it might not quite be appropriate to say mission accomplished. That’s never the case when the ever-evolving matter of education is concerned. But Cypress-Fairbanks, the third largest Texas school district, indeed continues to […]

Robert Bayard – Clear Creek Independent School District

Sometimes all it takes is one pesky squirrel. No, really—Clear Creek Independent School District has had entire networks taken out as a result of the relentlessly gnawing varmints. But it’s not just rodents that can be perilous: It could be a storm, a construction project, a fender bender—anything. “All it takes is one line being […]

Ron Dinwiddie – Texas Trust Credit Union

It wasn’t Armageddon, or even Y2K. But that didn’t stop Ron Dinwiddie from breathing a sigh of relief as the clock struck midnight and all systems were a go. Calls and texts from colleagues in the field confirmed what the screens in front of him seemed to show: that the months of late nights and […]

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 […]

Duleep Wikramanayake – Solis Mammography

Given that few things are as stressful as breast cancer screening, the term, Peace of Mind Mammogram, may sound like an oxymoron. But it’s more than just a tagline for Solis Mammography, the nation’s largest screener of such cancer. It’s also a goal that, however hard to achieve, the company vigorously pursues with the indispensable […]

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 […]

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.
