Juan Luna Memorial Academy recently celebrated its 87th Foundation Day with Atty. Ameurfina A. Respicio, consultant on Women of the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte, as crowning guest and speaker. The late former Ilocos Norte 2nd district Congressman Roman Campos founded the educational institution. The late lawmaker also served as judge of the Court of First Instance in La Union and Ilocos Sur. It was in 1928 when he established a secondary school in Badoc which he named Saranay High School so more elementary school graduates from Badoc could finish secondary education. At that time, high school students then had to travel to Laoag to study at the Ilocos Norte High School. In 1931, officials renamed the school to Juan Luna Memorial Academy.
