Professor Kathleen Hecht joined the College in 1979 and is the longest-serving adjunct in the Biology Department. Dr. Sarah Gross, department chair, said of her: "She truly cares for her students' academic success, and particularly excels in teaching laboratory courses."
A former student also praised Professor Hecht: "Professor Hecht not only changed my attitude toward biology, she made it enjoyable. Her lectures were informative and insightful. I found her to be one of the finest professors I have had the opportunity to learn from."
