Sponsored by Arcadia Family of Companies
Raymond Abregano, Jr. was born in Wahiawa, Oahu. He says growing up in the plantation was a blessing because it taught him to appreciate everything he had.
Abregano attended James Campbell High School and went on to study at the University of Hawaii and Chaminade College. Today, he is currently a faculty member at Saint Louis School and has been a teacher for nearly 50 years. He says teaching has been both a very exciting and challenging career.
He has also directed and produced the Miss Maui, Miss Maui Filipina, and Miss Hawaii-Filipina pageants. In fact, he has produced and directed the Miss Hawaii Pageant since 1983 and directed the Miss America Pageant swimsuit segment in 1992 in Atlantic City.
For Abregano, community service is what keeps him grounded. He says he’s always been taught to give back to those who have helped shape your life.
To the youth of today, Abregano says have faith in yourself and never give up.
“You live in a world of opportunities,” he adds.
