Meet David Hornak
Acknowledge Your Community Commando’s
We need more aggressive, proactive members of our communities to build a sense of urgency to overcome the national despair and outrage that continues to proliferate in our great country.
A mindset is needed that takes a desperate situation and makes it better. I like the term Community Commando to lead the charge!
This Community Commando will exhibit a tenacious attitude to help the tribe, our community, lead and teach. To lead by example, to lead by hard work, to lead by an undying love for others and community. A leader of unparalleled integrity, a person who exhibits the effort and obstinate attitude of giving to our children by teaching the correct way to grow up and to respect others, their property and families.
The Community Commando does not care about his or her own pain, because they know that through pain, growth can occur. Walking the proverbial walk is not enough. Talking the proverbial talk is just the beginning to lasting self-improvement. The love to teach and give back permeates their soul, an unquestionable and unquenchable thirst that drives them to the brink of quitting, but they never do. Instead they persevere, they learn new strategies, they work the system to benefit their personal body of work, gaining valuable hard earned knowledge.
A Community Commando knows that no one is perfect, that we all need to live each day to its fullest and to live for incremental self-improvement. That by waking each day with a sense of purpose you can improve, you can gain traction and control of your life. And through this positivity you can change others perceptions and beliefs. By small acts of kindness and a service mindset you can have a major impact on your neighborhood, your city, your state and your nation.
A Community Commando builds a synergistic team, one that covers for each other even in the darkest of moments and times. A symbiotic relationship, deeper than a sister or brother where words are not needed to energize and uplift. Actions speak volumes, actions solve issues, actions of pristine leadership are the Community Commando’s rule book.
A Community Commando understands that the comfort zone must be stretched, that growth will only occur with an attitude of gratitude. The most successful people posses learning agility and the willingness and ability to learn new and difficult competencies in order to perform at an even higher level. In situations of difficult even impossible situations, where many would give up, the Community Commando never quits until the job is complete, and the job has new challenges every day, so the job is fuel that fires the engine, and the job is the reward.
David Hornak is a Community Commando, his love for his community, students, family and job is unparalleled, and I am blessed to know him and call him a friend.
We need more people like David, he is a caring and driven educator who has never quit learning and continues to give to our schools, we are lucky to have him and his talent and heart.
We all can learn from David’s tireless efforts to help our children, and if you ever have a chance to talk to him, thank him for all of his positivity, it is infectious!
