ABOUT US

OUR CHAPTER

On December 3, 1959, the Redwood Chapter of Future Business Leaders of America, Chapter No. 2068, was started by Ms. Maxine White. The membership, which started with twenty five students, has continued to grow throughout the years under the direction of long-standing adviser Ms. Doris Lowe. The chapter developed into a section power under Ms. Lowe's leadership and passion. Mr. Jacob Avila, the present chapter adviser, began to guide the Redwood Chapter in January of 2008. Chapter membership in 2020-2022 has risen to over one-hundred members. Redwood FBLA is currently in its 62nd year.
