Promoting sports among high school students has been a goal of all of the Dublin area high schools over the years. Extracurricular activities provide leadership skills and team building, and teach respect. The Dublin Fencing Club wanted to provide updated equipment necessary to introduce this sport to students, train them to compete and form a team that would represent Dublin in district competitions as well as the State High School Tournament. All of Dublin’s high schools are involved in and help support the growth of this program. The combined efforts of community volunteers and the Dublin Foundation helped this program take the next step for the students’ benefit.
