    HistoryVision & MissionObjectivesPolicies

    February 1945, Rev. Fr. Alphonse M. Mildner, SVD, upon the advice of the Father Provincial, Rev, Fr. Herman Kondring, SVD proceeded to Laoag, Ilocos Norte to see the possibility of establishing a Catholic School. This was in response to the persistent invitation of Rev. Msgr. Ignacio Cordero the parish priest of St. William’s Parish at that time. Within the few months’ stay of Fr. Alphonse Mildner, SVD, he observed the urgent need to separate and accommodate the growing number of high school male students of the then Holy Ghost Academy. Likewise, he felt the pressing necessity to accommodate graduating students who were unable to pursue college studies in Manila due to financial reasons. In view of these observations, Fr. Alphonse Mildner, SVD, immediately recommended to hi superiors the establishment of a school not just a boy’s high school as formerly contemplated, but also a college.

    The school formally opened in July 1946. three months after, the first issue of the school’s official organ, the “Guide” now the “Williamite” was published.

    The SVD day of 1948 was highlighted with the grand inauguration and blessing of the imposing three storey Building with an auditorium known as Mildner Hall. The college hymn “Pride of the North” composed by Jose L. Pedro was sung for the first time during the SVD day celebration. The same year, the school seal was adopted incorporating the motto “Deo et Patrie”. Logo was created by architect George Manligas, Sr.

    Cognizant of the increasing student population during the50’s and 60’s, the SVD decided to construct the new building on a sprawling eight hectare of land. This edifice was named K building in honor of Fr. Ernest Keilen, SVD.

    It was on October 1964 when the school changed its name from St William’s College to Divine Word College of Laoag in order to achieve uniformity with the other SVD run schools. It was in that same year that the school established a guidance office. The school continuously expanded its physical facilities as evidenced by the construction of the Arnoldous Building, the K building Annex, a new college canteen, and conversion of the old Mildner Building into a ladies dormitory which was later turned over the Diocese of Laoag.

    The grade school finally ended its journey in search for a permanent home on January 1983, when Arnoldous Building opened its doors.

    With Very Rev. Herman Kondring , SVD as president and Very Rev. Alphonse M. Mildner, SVD as the Director of the Colege, Mr. Pedro Ronduen, Head, Normal Department, became the first principal of then St. William’s Elementary School in 1947-1949.

    Ms. Lucia Felipe, then a critic teacher of Grade VI, succeeded Mr. Ronduen when the latter became a Superintendent. Felipe’s term of six years ended in 1955 as she became the Dean of College of Education of the DWCL. Dr. Lorenza S. Matias, who was concurrently supervisor of student teaching , served as principal in 1958, after Mrs. Ignacia caridad. Then she left for Laoag Central School in 1964.

    Sister Rita Paul, SSPS, became the principal in the year 1964-1966.

    Another SSPS sister, Sister Carmencita, took the place of Sister Rita Paul when she was assigned to another place. Sister Carmencita was principal for three 3 years from 1966-1969.

    In 1969, the year the school transferred to the new site, Mr. Ruben Labayog Ragudo became the principal. In 1979 after serving as principal of the elementary department, he was appointed principal of the high school department. Mrs. Rosario Reyes Guiang became principal of the elementary department from 1979 to 1995.
