Velez Y. Ramos, the first elected Governor of Misamis Province. It was formally inaugurated on December 15, 1909. The ceremony
was attended by an impressive array of national officials headed by the American Governor-General William Cameron Forbes and
speaker Sergio Osmena Sr. During his time, classes were only open for intermidiate grades, Grade 5, Grade 6, and first year
high school. So students had to do either to Manila or Cebu to pursue their studies. The second, third, and fourth year were
added as funds became available. Ezperanza, Roa-Ongpin and Juanita Fernandez-Neri were the first Filipino teachers in the
intermediate grades. The school had its first graduationin 1922.
