Wilson Alum, comedian Gabriel Iglesias and his teacher, June Garner

The email below was received recently from local reporter Carla Javier:

Hi there Wilson High School Alumni committee – My name is Carla and I’m a reporter at the public radio station KPCC (89.3 FM) and our online news site, LAist.com.

I’m reaching out to you because I just did a story about a Wilson High alum – comedian Gabriel Iglesias – and his teacher, June Garner.

I thought it’s the kind of story that other alumni of Wilson might want to check out! So, I wanted to give you the links in case you wanted to share in social media, newsletters, at reunions, etc.

Here’s the video: https://www.facebook.com/theLAist/videos/412501269629395/

Here’s the web story (with video embedded): https://laist.com/2019/11/19/gabriel_iglesias_wilson_long_beach_netflix.php

Here’s the radio as it aired on KPCC (the blue play button is in the top left or on the top, depending on your browser): https://www.scpr.org/news/2019/11/19/90529/meet-the-long-beach-speech-teacher-who-taught-gabr/

Please do be in touch if you do end up sharing or get any notes from any other alumni – I’m sure many folks met or learned from June Garner. I’d love to hear what they think!

Wishing you all the best,

Carla
