Robert M. Westbrook







Term Ends: November 2023

Robert Westbrook was elected to the SCUCISD Board of Trustees in May 2011 and served as President of the Board for two years, through November of 2021. 

He is a graduate of the 2013 Leadership TASB, which confers Master Trustee status.

He is a graduate of Churchill High School, the United States Military Academy Preparatory School and Texas State University. He also attended the U.S. Military Academy for his first two years of college. He earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Websters University. 

Professionally, he is a Fire Chief with the San Antonio Fire Department with certifications as a paramedic, hazardous materials technician, wild-land firefighter and Fire Science Instructor.  Additionally, he has completed the City of San Antonio Leadership Development Program.

Westbrook has two children, both graduates of SCUC ISD. While service was a primary consideration, Mr. Westbrook ran for office because he wanted to demonstrate to his children a common saying, “I bargained with life for a penny, only to learn dismayed, that any wage I would have asked of life, life would have paid.”  

In September of 2016, Mr. Westbrook was elected to a three-year term on the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Board of Directors, representing TASB Region 20, Position D. He was re-elected to another three-year term in 2019. 

Mr. Westbrook is also serving on the TASB Lone Star Investment Board.
