ST. PETERSBURG – Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will usher in the St. Petersburg College Foundation’s new Distinguished Speakers Series Monday, Nov. 2, 7 p.m., at the Palladium Theater at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N.

Proceeds from the event, The Wozniak Project: An Evening with Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak, will support Foundation scholarships for SPC students. Known as one of the most important innovators of our time, Wozniak will lead a lively, interactive discussion customized for his audience.

General admission ticket prices range from $85 to $95. Visit www.m­ypall­adium­.org.

A Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist for more than 30 years, Wozniak helped shape the computing industry with his design of Apple’s first line of products. Together with the late Steve Jobs, Wozniak founded Apple Computer Inc. in 1976, and developed the Apple I personal computer. A year later, they unveiled the Apple II, launching the personal computing industry as we know it. For his achievements at Apple, former President Ronald Reagan in 1985 awarded Wozniak the National Medal of Technology, the highest honor bestowed on America’s leading innovators.

Inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame in 2000, Wozniak received the Heinz Award for Technology, The Economy and Employment for single-handedly designing the first personal computer, and for then redirecting his lifelong passion for math and electronics toward lighting the fires of excitement for education in grade school students and their teachers.

Wozniak is Chief Scientist at Primary Data and author of the New York Times’ best-selling autobiography “iWoz: Computer Geek to Cult Icon.”

With more than 60 percent of SPC’s annual enrollment of 45,000 students relying on tuition assistance, scholarships play a critical role in the student success and help ensure that graduates are equipped with the high-demand skills necessary to address the opportunities of a rapidly changing marketplace.
