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.”

I have compiled a list of ideas for improving the school district that people have submitted. This list is exceptionally diverse, but they cluster into four main categories: Parent Concerns about the Board, Teacher's Concerns, Educational Disparities, and Costs/Taxes/Money. Read the specific ideas that comprise each category and how they were grouped.
 
This is not statistically projectable; the base is to small and the collection is not random because people self-selected. However, it is directional.
