Robert Baker

District 7

Robert BakerI have been a member of the Tipmont board for 13 years and a past director representing Tipmont on the Wabash Valley Power board for eight years. I am originally from Illinois. I have my bachelor, master, and education specialist degrees from Eastern Illinois University. I also hold a doctorate in school administration.

Even though I was raised in Illinois, I moved to Indiana 46 years ago to begin my career in public education. I first taught in Vermillion County for five years prior to accepting a teaching position in Fountain County. While with the Southeast Fountain schools, I taught fourth grade followed by working as assistant principal, principal and finally district superintendent. Leaving Southeast Fountain, I finished my career in Vermilion County, IL as the chief administrator for a special education cooperative and a vocational cooperative.

My hobbies include a passion for horses and hunting. Since retirement, I have made many trips with my horse Buddy to various locations in the Rocky Mountains. I have ridden in every state from the Mexican border to the Canadian border. As for hunting, I prefer white-tailed deer in Indiana and elk in the western states of New Mexico and Colorado.

I am very thankful that the membership has allowed me to represent them on the Tipmont board for these past 13 years. It is a fascinating and challenging position. I strongly believe that in the future our members will see some dramatic changes in how we supply electric power. This is an exciting time to be involved with a provider of electric energy and I strongly believe Tipmont is in a position to respond to these changes in a positive way for our members.
