  • What line of The Rea Way describes you the best? Invest in your family, your community and your future.
  • What do you consider is your “brightest” quality? I consider myself to be an analytical thinker. When encountering a problem, it is essential to critically evaluate all of its facets before formulating a solution.
  • What “bright idea” do you find yourself sharing over and over? Positivity, both with oneself and displayed among others, is invaluable.
