The school is widely known as WASCO; that is the Western Annang Secondary Commercial School. There is hardly anyone from Akwa Ibom State who would not know this school located in Ukanafun Local Government. It is one of the oldest secondary schools in the state. In the early 70s when the school was born, it was always a thing of pride to tell people that you have been offered admission to study there. There used to be competition. To get in there, you just have to be sound upstairs. It was one school that people who lived in distance places like Lagos would send their children to go and study. Distance was not an issue. What was important was the quality of training and the facilities it had.
