PRESIDENT’S MEDAL RECIPIENT

FRANK OROPEZA Dr. Frank C. Oropeza is a successful engineer and entrepreneur. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Oropeza worked full time while also taking a full course load, and graduated from Indiana Institute of Technology in 1959 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. Dr. Oropeza is an entrepreneur at heart, and like most successful entrepreneurs, he found success only after numerous failed attempts. He eventually seized an opportunity in the automotive aftermarket, and he created a successful company called Transpo Electronics. He began by making high-quality voltage regulators in his garage, and over a 26-year period, he grew the company into a global manufacturing powerhouse. Transpo developed more than 4,000 new products for the automotive aftermarket parts industry, employed over 1,600 people worldwide and had annual revenue of $140 million. Since earning his degree, Frank has supported his alma mater with his service and his gifts. He served nine years s a member of Indiana Tech’s board of trustees. Frank and Anne have been members of the President’s Club since 1982. They are also members of the Archie Keene Society, which recognizes those who have made planned gifts to the university. Frank was awarded an honorary doctorate in engineering from Indiana Tech in 1987, and he was inducted into the Indiana Tech Alumni Hall of Fame in 2008. The Oropezas made a most generous donation to the university: a gift to build a residence hall, which was dedicated in 2009 and named the Frank and Anne Oropeza Hall. Oropeza credits his success in life to hard work, family, faith and a little luck. He is proud of the education he received from Indiana Tech and believes in giving back. Frank lives Indiana Tech’s core values and personifies what it means to be a Warrior.
