Todd Borland – Union Public Schools

The idea that a school district can own a student’s data—from semester transcripts and grades to awards and recognitions, even diplomas—is one that’s garnered increased acceptance in recent years. But a school system is merely a steward of that information—students are the masters. This is Todd Borland’s philosophy. As the executive director of technology for […]

Ryan J. Collins – Open Lending

He wouldn’t wish another recession on the nation, though Ryan J. Collins has to acknowledge how the last one strengthened his employer’s clout in the very specialized business of automating the auto lending process for financial institutions. Economic downturns, after all, force the Darwin effect on many industries, with survival of the fittest companies being […]

Matt Glover – Le-Vel

Picture, if you will, a plane on an upward climb. As it accelerates, the craft relies on its propellers for propulsion—but at the same time, there’s a team of workers out on the wings, changing out those very propellers to boost power. And all of this without disrupting the forward—and upward—motion. That’s how Matt Glover […]

Travis Cutright – City of Mesa

It’s not Tokyo or New York, but for Chief Information Officer Travis Cutright, the IT amenities currently being rolled out in Mesa, Arizona—the 35th largest city in the U.S.—are as cutting-edge as they come. There’s a mobile app that allows users to access and pay their utility bills from anywhere, high-speed networks in neighborhoods where reliable […]

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 “So often our technology was outdated and, as a teacher, I would get […]

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. […]

Micha Villarreal – Ysleta Independent School District

In one of Thomas Manor Elementary School’s popular common areas, where comfy couches and chairs sit alongside traditional tables, a student runs through a battery of math and science exercises on her Chromebook. Just down the street, at Riverside High School, three sophomores huddle together in social studies class, devices in hand. They’re drafting a […]

Michelle Williams – Lancaster Independent School District

In May of 2015, when it came time for Texas’ Lancaster Independent School District (LISD) to start the construction of two new elementary schools—and top-to-bottom renovations of two more schools—the first people Michelle Williams needed to talk to weren’t tech vendors or peers from other districts. They weren’t from the mayor’s office or the Texas […]

Robert Haley – Collom & Carney Clinic

It’s a dilemma faced by thousands of Americans every day: Drive an hour to have an illness or injury checked out, or bide your time in hopes the pain will somehow subside? In far too many cases, that gamble ends with a trip to the emergency room and a potentially massive bill. For patients of […]

Nathan Hunstable – Cinergy Entertainment Group Inc.

A night at the movies isn’t what it used to be. Not for the younger set that expects more than just picture and popcorn. Same goes for a trip to the bowling alley. Or to a video arcade. It’s not just about pins and Pac-Man. Indeed the whole idea of family-style entertainment is fast evolving. […]

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
