Michael Jubec, a senior at Greensburg Central Catholic, has participated in myriad of activities during his high school career.

During his senior year, he played midfield defender for the boys varsity soccer team and midfield for the boys varsity lacrosse team. Jubec also participated in the boys varsity cross country team for three years and competed with the boys varsity track and field team, for which he ran the 400 meters and the 1,600-meter relay. He also played a year with the boys junior varsity basketball team as a guard. His athleticism helped him letter in each of the sports.

In other school activities, the Greensburg resident is president of student council, a member of Interact, the National Spanish Honor Society and the Scrabble and chess clubs. As a freshman, Jubec also participated in choir. This year, he is part of a group of students who are helping to organize Project Pride, a club created to help clean up the school.

The grandson of Joseph and Charlene Brown is an altar server for his parish, St. Paul Roman Catholic Church in Greensburg, and also participates in Magi Ministries, providing Christmas gifts and a party for less-fortunate families in the area each holiday season. Jubec is active in his parish youth group and volunteers to help operate the Bible school each summer.

Jubec hopes to begin a part-time job at Newhaven Court at Lindwood in Greensburg, helping to prepare and serve food for the residents at the assisted living facility.

After graduation, Jubec plans to attend college, majoring in business and later attend law school. Although he has not made a selection to date, he is looking at a number of schools in the Philadelphia and New Jersey areas, including Villanova and St. Joseph universities. He hopes to one day work in corporate law.
