Robert Baker

District 7

Robert BakerRobert Baker has been a member of the Tipmont board since 2003 and a past director representing Tipmont on the Wabash Valley Power Alliance board for eight years. Originally from Illinois, Baker holds bachelor’s, master’s, and education specialist degrees from Eastern Illinois University. He also holds a doctorate in school administration.

Even though Baker was raised in Illinois, he moved to Indiana nearly 50 years ago to begin his career in public education. He first taught in Vermillion County for five years prior to accepting a teaching position in Fountain County. While with the Southeast Fountain schools, he taught fourth grade, followed by roles as assistant principal, principal and, finally, district superintendent. After leaving Southeast Fountain, Baker finished his career in Vermilion County in Illinois, as the chief administrator for a special education cooperative and a vocational cooperative.

Baker is married with one granddaughter, and his son is deceased. His hobbies include a passion for horses and hunting. Since retiring, Baker has made many trips with his horse, Buddy, to various locations in the Rocky Mountains. He has ridden in every state from the Mexican border to the Canadian border.

I’m thankful that the membership has allowed me to represent them on the Tipmont board for these past 18 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.
