BARANGAY CAMPO HIMOGA-AN
Barangay CampoHimoga-an got its name from the visayan word “campo” which means “Camp” of the Insular Lumber Company(ILCO) personnel, where housing, a canteen, bodega and locomotive water tank were constructed while Himoga-an was taken from the name of the river traversing the place was located. Literally, CampoHimoga-an is a camp of laborer residents of ILCO.
In 1935, after the camp was completed, a civic-minded citizen named Simeon Templado, convinced all parents in the camp to have a school for their children and a school building was constructed by way of self-help cooperation. Later, they organized the Parent-Teacher Association in which Mr. Templado became president. With his leadership, the PTA passed a resolution requesting the local government of Sagay to release a donation of four (4) hectares of land for the school site and public plaza. The resolution was indorsed by the local government of Sagay to the Bureau of Land (now DENR) which later approved the proposal and survey was then conducted.
Upon completion of the survey, another PTA resolution was passed requesting for the declaration of CampoHimoga-an as one of the barrios of Sagay. After several months, the Municipality of Sagay approved the proposal and declared CampoHimoga-an as a new barrio of Sagay.
