  • History & Memorable Moments

This institution was first known as Naval Reservation Junior College and it was passed on by the Lindayag Family in 1961 to the Columban Fathers The first Director of Columban College was Rev. Thomas L. Convery with Rev. Fr. Paul O' Malley SSC as his assistant. [1]

Columban Sisters were assigned during the schoolyear 1962-63 to assist in the administrative and teaching programs of the college. In that same year the Parish of St. Columban was inaugurated with Rev. Paul O'Malley as its Parish Priest. In 1965, Father Convery was succeeded by Rev. William F. Sullivan, SSC as School Director .Rev. Fr. John Curry SSC took over in 1971 and Rev. Fr. Edward McKenna was the School Director from 1973 up to 1975. From 1976 up to 1982 Rev. Fr. Richard Cannon SSC was the School Director. He was succeeded by Rev. Fr. Vincent Lyons from 1982 up to 1983.In 1983, the Administration of the College was handed over by the Columban Fathers to the Vincentian Fathers. Rev. Fr. Constancio Gan was appointed School Director. Within a short span of time, the new administrators made several substantial improvements on the physical set-up that can be seen around the campus. Behind this progress was the adoption of new policies and guidelines while struggling to keep the whole college financially afloat in the midst of prevailing national economic crisis. [1]

The Daughters of Charity took over when the contract of the Vincentians expired in 1989. Sr. Stella Real D.C. was then appointed School Director. The Daughters of Charity, like their predecessors, continued the work to pursue the goals, philosophy, objectives and the mission thrust for which Columban College exist. [1]

The year 1993 signals new direction for Columban College. Finally, Most Reverend Bishop Deogracias Iniquez Jr., the head of the Diocesan Schools decided to take over the administration of Columban College. Like in any Diocesan School , the Director of an Institution comes from the Diocesan Clergy assigned in the Diocese in Iba. [1]

Rev. Fr. Daniel O. Presto was appointed as School Director in 1993 and later became the School President until October 2005. He was succeeded by Rev. Fr. Roland M. Almo and then by Rev. Msgr. Crisostomo A. Cacho and is presently the School President. [1]
