CHS Senior Standout: Allie Hecht

Senior Allie Hecht went to elementary school in Spokane, Washington. A very cold winter motivated her family to decide to move to sunny Coronado, California.

Allie has had a very positive experience at Coronado High School. She has had the opportunity to partake in many different activities. “School was the place I grew up the most; I learned so much in my four years and have made amazing friends along the way.” She is so thankful to have attended a school as wonderful as Coronado High School. Allie’s most memorable moment while at CHS was the first pep rally she emceed, as a junior at the powder puff pep rally. “Standing in front of the entire student boy and trying to create a fun, engaging environment was a challenge but the second I got up there and spoke into the microphone I got this feeling that is indescribable.” Allie’s favorite teacher is AP English Literature teacher, Mr. Hoang. Mr. Hoang really engages his students in the books; he also helps students begin to craft their own ideas and to think more critically. In the last few weeks of High school Allie is most looking forward to bonding with her graduating class and enjoying all senior activities such as Disneyland and Powder puff.

Next fall Allie will be heading to Santa Barbara to attend The University of California at Santa Barbara. She chose this school for “the competitive academics, wide range of study abroad opportunities and the beautiful location.” Allie will be majoring in pre med biology. In ten years Allie hopes to be starting her own Physical Therapy practice with an emphasis on athletes.

One thing many people don’t know about Allie is that she tore her ACL, LCL and meniscus last year playing soccer.
