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/

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,
On air at 89.3 FM
