Pablo Borbon of Batangas was elected governor from 1910 – 1916. He became Congressman for Batangas and later court of First Instance, Judge of Tayabas (now Quezon) province. He died in full harness in the session hall. During his leadership, he maintained an almost complete peace in enhancing education which led to the naming of the local trade school in his honor.

Pablo Borbon Memorial Institute of Technology or TRADE(Batangas State University) was established on 1903 as a Manual Training School, aimed of training male youth for gainful occupations particularly woodworking under the leadership of the American Mr. Sheer, the first school principal.
