ELIZABETH — In October, Hubie and Claire Brown visited St. Mary of the Assumption High School in Elizabeth.
Hubie, a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, former NBA coach and current TV analyst, is a 1951 graduate of St. Mary’s. During his visit, he attended the blessing of the statue of St. Mary on the school grounds and toured the school. He also had lunch with students and alumni, as well as the principal, Janet Malko, and other staff members.
Hubie entertained everyone at lunch with his many interesting stories of his days at St. Mary’s and his career. The students appreciated Hubie’s encouraging words, as well as the time he spent with them.
Joe Monaco of the St. Mary’s Alumni Association organized the luncheon. The Alumni Association was founded in September 2010 and new members are always welcome. The Alumni Association holds a luncheon at the school the first Monday of each month at 1 p.m. Information about membership and the luncheon can be obtained from Monaco at 1-908-419-5559.
