Welcome to NONESCOST
The Northern Negros State College of Science and Technology has a humble beginning. What now stands as the only state college in Northern Negros and the only science and technology state college in the Province of Negros Occidental was once the Old Sagay Barangay High (OSBS) that started to operate in 1970. Its foundation was made possible by then Municipal Mayor, Alfredo G. Marañon, Jr., Brgy. Capt. Pedro G. Katalbas and Mr. Leopoldo Fernandez, who became its first Principal. Its pioneer graduates included ten students.
In 1978, OSBHS was converted into a Municipal High School with Mrs. Priscilla L. Amar as the head-designate. In that same year, Mayo Alfredo G. Marañon, Jr. and Dr. Elpidio M. Icamina, President of the Iloilo State College of Fisheries (ISCOF), Barotac Nuevo, Iloilo signed the historical Memorandum of Agreement that transformed OSBHS into an extension campus of ISCOF. This major development in the school's history was also made possible with the help of Congressman Narciso Monfort. This was also the year when the government of Osterholt, West Germany donated books, equipment and an eight-classroom building that added to the limited facilities of the school. In the succeeding years, the same government has continued granting aids to the school with an additional donation of a fishing boat and a five-hectare brackish-water fishpond located at Tabunan, Brgy. Taba-ao, Sagay City, Negros Occidental.
