Dionne Tunstall Jenkins – Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools

Dionne Tunstall Jenkins has never been far from a classroom. Not in her role as general counsel for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. Not when she used to visit her father’s classrooms during summer breaks, and certainly not when she established her own classroom at home with old textbooks and a blackboard and taught her stuffed animals. […]

Darron J. Flagg – PowerSchool

Secure in a choice legal role for 14 years at Intel Corp., Darron J. Flagg was deeply moved by a humanitarian trip as part of a team installing tech into a school in rural India. This, combined with a desire for a managerial position, intrigued Flagg when he saw an opportunity at PowerSchool in late […]

Cordell Jung – NCS Pearson Inc.

Got to ensure the legitimacy of professional certifications. Someone’s safety might depend on it. So reminds Cordell Jung, senior vice president and general counsel of Assessments, a division of Minnesota-based Pearson. Catching and prosecuting those who cheat on exams or steal intellectual property is among the many roles of his legal team that manages globally […]

Francine Katz – Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates

It’s a surprising number: about 25 percent of practicing physicians in the U.S. are foreign educated. And while graduates from American institutions have a built-in support system at their medical schools as they plan for training and licensure, international medical graduates (IMGs) often need support navigating this pathway, says Francine Halushka Katz, the first general […]

Paul Meggett – Appalachian State University

There were speeches and presentations from chancellors and provosts; a keynote address by author, journalist and radio and TV personality Stephen J. Dubner (‘84); even a performance by country singer Luke Combs. With the government shutdown in full effect, a traditional commencement ceremony at Appalachian State University—the pomp and circumstance, assemblage of caps and gowns, […]

Kristin Caldwell – LaCalle Group

When COVID-19 broke across the United States this spring, there was one thing that the team at LaCalle Group had little trouble adjusting to: working remotely. It’s certainly been useful for the parent company of virtual online educational learning sites. Operating remotely, it’s home to AudiologyOnline, SpeechPathology.com, OccupationalTherapy.com, PhysicalTherapy.com, continued Early Childhood Education and Simucase. […]

Jennifer L. Ervin – Shelby County Schools

Most homecoming celebrations involve wearing school colors, singing the school song, a pep rally and then the big game. For Jennifer L. Ervin, homecoming has been a bit more involved. As general counsel and chief legal officer from 2016-19 for the Shelby County Schools in Memphis, Tennessee, she managed all the legal operations for the […]

Matt Wilde – Boise State University

College football fans know the blue field at Albertsons Stadium when they see it, blue and beckoning as the home of the Boise State University Broncos. For more than a decade, the team has routinely been nationally ranked, taking on all comers on the blue turf and beyond, including the 2007 upset of the Oklahoma […]

Whitney Walters-Sachs – Pine Crest School

In the world of Whitney Walters-Sachs, it’s dangerous territory to never say never—because you might just end up where you least expected to. That was her experience, anyway. Visiting her parents years ago as a young lawyer, her folks thought she should leave her high-profile job as a corporate attorney in New York City to […]

Diana Abril – Ilumno

Growing up in a remote area in Latin America, technologically detached from the world—and where one’s friends and relatives may have never received a formal education—might make getting a college degree out of reach and low on the list of life’s priorities. But underserved populations, historically without access to education, in Latin America have been […]

Testimonials

I was honored to be the subject of an article. I enjoy reading Vanguard articles and seeing how other attorneys got to their positions and see their jobs. It's also interesting to see how different law firms partner with the subjects of the articles.
– Henry Marquard, in-house counsel, Stanley Consultants Inc.
The piece highlighting my company, Bob Baker Enterprises, Inc., came out fabulous. Our company is in the new and used car sales and service industry. Everyone was great to work with and extremely professional. They produced a high-quality product and have provided expert assistance and guidance post-production of the article.
– Wade Poulson, General Counsel, Bob Baker Enterprises Inc.
It was a great honor to be featured in Vanguard Law. Working with every member of the team, from the initial interview with Erin Clark, through production with Victor Martins, writing the article with Taryn Plumb and creating the final content with Dave Gushee, was a true pleasure. Everyone was very professional, enthusiastic and supportive, and their creative approach and positive attitude clearly came through in the final product.
– Kevin C. Rakowski, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Compliance with Radian Group Inc.
As promised in advance, my feature in Vanguard has increased my visibility within the profession and prompted more than a few people I have not communicated with recently to reconnect. One of the Italian law firms I have used in the past is now in the process of interviewing me for an article on their website and tweeting out the feature story. Activity and the number of people connecting with me on LinkedIn has soared, which is great. The Vanguard writers and editorial staff were great to work with—highly professional and made the effort to make the experience both fun and rewarding (they were also respectful of the time pressures and demands all lawyers face). I was very pleased with the experience and the final outcome. Needless to say, I have been very pleased. All in all working with Vanguard has been a very positive experience which generated good publicity for both Shawcor and myself. My sincere thanks.
– Tim Hutzul, General Counsel, ShawCor Ltd.
