About Me

Collin Hecht attends Effingham High School as a senior. He participates in cross country, soccer, and track and field for the Hearts. He is the senior-class president, and is also a member of Art Club, Society for Academic Achievement, National Honor Society and serves on the student council. Outside of school, he spends time working out, hanging with friends, and with his church youth group. In the summer he gives swimming lessons and works at Dan Hecht Chevrolet-Toyota.

“The CEO program generates big talk around our school and our community. Believing that a career in business interested me, I knew I wanted to be part of this program and to be part of that prestigious class. I know CEO will leave me with many life-lessons learned and invaluable skills I can use, now and through the rest of my life.”
