History of Aparicio-Levy Technical College
Aparicio-Levy Technical College was dedicated April 21, 2006, with the mission of providing employers with qualified entry-level employees. Today, we continue to provide high-quality career training for adults.
ALTC was named after two distinguished Tampa natives, Henry Aparicio and George Levy, who rendered outstanding service to public education and support to industrial education.
Henry Aparicio was a nationally recognized industrial arts teacher in drafting and sheet metal for over 40 years. He was highly respected by his students and generations of sheet metal workers in the Tampa Bay area.
George Levy was a business entrepreneur who worked tirelessly with civic leaders and fellow business owners to cultivate the sports, economic, and community landscape that the Tampa Bay community enjoys today. His small business, George A. Levy Awards, grew to one of the nation's largest producers of trophies and awards.
Aparicio-Levy Technical College was formerly known as Aparicio-Levy Technical Center.
In December 2014, Hillsborough County School Board approved the name change from Aparicio-Levy Technical Center to Aparicio-Levy Technical College.
The Council on Occupational Education approved the change in January 2015.
The name change on the transcripts became effective on January 21, 2015, for students graduating on or after that date.
