Dubach FBLA is proud to have junior high members joining this year. Although Dubach High School consists of students in grades six through 12, FBLA was previously only offered to ninth through 12th grades.
To increase membership and knowledge of FBLA, membership was opened to sixth through eighth graders this year.
