It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since we formed in 2014,with only 14 members and no idea what we were doing!

We’ve come a long way since then.

  • Consistent membership of 55-65 members each year!
  • Nearly 400 district awards!
  • Dozens of state award winners!
  • Eight national award-winning teams, including two national champions!
  • Thousands of dollars raised for area charities!
  • Annual service projects to benefit the school and the community!
  • An alumni class that has garnered a dozen district officers, two state officers, and is responsible for initiating two high school chapters!

In addition, our chapter’s families were influential in pushing for the expansion of middle school involvement at the national level, and this year the top four teams in the state will be able to compete at Nationals, reaching parity with the high school level for eligible students!

Now it’s time to tee-up for the next decade…

  • Our first informational meeting for students will be on August 15 from 2:30 to 3:30 in the Media Center. All interested students are welcome!
  • Officer Campaigns and Elections for all officers (except President and Vice-president) will be on August 22!  

We are looking forward to seeing everyone this August to help us kick off the next great decade with FBLA!
