VAIL — Michael Hecht has been named Sigma Nu Fraternity Alumni Chapter Officer of the Year.

To win the award, an officer must be active in the alumni chapter and the general fraternity, demonstrate leadership, involvement, and overall achievement.

His volunteer service includes more than 20 years as house corporation president, four years as alumni advisory board chairman, and as a leader in the alumni chapter since 2016, where he helped recruit younger alumni to serve as board members, planned annual events reconnecting alumni to the chapter, and created an alumni mentor program for collegiate members.
