Family, Friends Grapple with Loss of Professor Dawn Mabalon
STOCKTON RECORD -- Dawn Mabalon should be preparing for the fall semester at California State University, San Francisco, where she was a history professor. And she should be hanging out with her good pal, ethnic studies Professor Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales.
“She’s one of most diligent teachers I’ve ever known,” Tintiangco-Cubales said. “She’s one of the funniest, wittiest dynamic educators in our field, and that goes for her personality, too.
“She was hilarious. ... One of the things I admire about Dawn is she would never shy away from taking a stand about what she believes in, even if it was not popular to believe that.”
