About Me

Matt Niebrugge is a senior at Effingham High School where he has participated in Math Club, Chemistry Club, and IMPACT, a volunteer service organization. In fact, Matt actively volunteers throughout the community and in his church. In his free time he enjoys tennis, photography, and the outdoors.

“I’m eagerly anticipating being part of CEO while it offers a hands-on experience with how businesses are actually run. I am looking forward to finding new avenues in my life I never thought I would travel. I am hoping to build professional relationships with my classmates and with leaders in our community.”

About My Business

Matt Niebrugge has started a video production company, In Focus Productions. In Focus Productions creates videos for use as marketing tools. Depending on the customer, he can produce a commercial or a backstory video chronicling where a business started, why it started, how it has progressed, and what the future might hold. Also, positive-themed videos will be posted on social media, giving viewers something positive to watch in a negative world. Matt says, “CEO has opened my eyes about the world around me and it helped me realize Effingham is one of the best places to live and start a business; it’s such a supportive community.” He’ll attend Lake Land College, then transfer to Southern Illinois University at Carbondale to pursue a degree in business management.
