We are very proud of our own Jess Tabasa, President of the Monterey Bay Chapter of the Filipino American National Historical Society, who was inducted into Watsonville High School’s Hall of Fame last Friday–for his work in keeping Filipino American history alive in his home town of Watsonville, and across the nation. An honor well-deserved! As long as we’ve known him, he has been a seemingly tireless educator and promoter of Filipino American history. He is also a Trustee of the Filipino Community of Watsonville, and an active member of Asian Cultural Experience (A.C.E.), Salinas, CA.

The Santa Cruz Sentinal has an article on Jess’s Hall of Fame induction, with information on the other inductees. Read more about it HERE.
