Robert Rehak - Position 1 Candidate
Rehak has been a Kingwood resident for 33 years and had two children who attended Bear Branch Elementary, Kingwood Middle and Kingwood High. He owned a local business, Rehak Creative Services, for 22 years, and retired from that business last year. He is looking for a significant way to give back to the community he loves.
“I have seen how inspiring teachers can affect the trajectory of a child’s life, and I want to make sure that we continue to attract those teachers to Humble ISD,” said Rehak. When asked why he chose to run for Position 1, Rehak stated, “I had to choose one of the positions, and I chose #1 because I like #1. I know nothing about Robert Sitton; I’m sure he’s a great guy, but this is the position I chose to run for.”
