HISTORY The present logo was adopted in 1985 when the Iloilo Maritime Academy (IMA) became a Foundation and changed its name to the John B. Lacson Colleges Foundation (JBLCF). In 1985, a contest was conducted among the members of the institution’s community, faculty, staff and students for a new logo due to the conversion of Iloilo Maritime Academy into JBLCF. Midshipman Nelson Reyes of the Marine Engineering Department won the logo making contest. With slight revisions, it was adopted as the official JBLCF logo.
