Joe Gubbins was a member of the original faculty when Marian opened in 1959. He was at
Marian for six years and during that time he taught English and Religion. He also wore many different
hats as the first Head Basketball Coach, Dean of Discipline, Dean of Studies, Asst. Football Coach,
Golf Coach, etc. Joe made lifetime friends while at Marian and now resides in Phoenix where he is
the Principal and Academic Director at Spring Ridge Academy.

Lisa (Huemann) Coté ’75, Johnsburg, is always surprised by Marian connections. She works
as a hairdresser for special needs clients and the elderly. While cutting hair at The Fountains in Crystal
Lake for Joe Vorisek, he related his connection to Marian. In 1977 while living at the Community
Living Facility for the Handicapped (originally the Marian convent and now the Annex), Joe asked
the track coach Lou Hartlieb if he could run with the team. Lou reluctantly agreed. One day the team
was told to run five miles up Raffle Road to Ware Road, to 47 and 120. Several of the players took
the short cut on St. John’s Road but Joe with cerebral palsy stayed with the original plan. Joe would
never cheat on Coach Hartlieb.
