Welcome aboard, Dr. Rick Hurst!

Regents Academy is glad to welcome Dr. Rick Hurst to its faculty for the 2019-20 school year. Dr. Hurst will teach the juniors in the Christendom 2 Omnibus course. Certainly no stranger to the Regents community, Dr. Hurst’s daughter Mary Austin teaches 6th grade and his two granddaughters, Lucy and Emma, are students.

Born in Southern California and raised in a small town in the panhandle of Texas, Dr. Hurst is an oral surgeon who has practiced in Nacogdoches and Lufkin since 1980. Dr. Hurst and his wife Christie have 4 children and 10 grandchildren, and they attend Grace Bible Church.

A gifted teacher who loves to learn, Dr. Hurst’s love for the Lord and his Christian leadership will be a wonderful addition to our school community. Welcome, Dr. Hurst!
