Peter Philpott, Vice President, Robert W Baird and Co.

Fort Worth resident of 35 years

Peter Philpott is the board chair of Rocketship Texas and a longtime advisor in the financial sector. He serves on several non-profit boards all focused on children’s issues, including: Cook Children’s Healthcare System, ACH Child and Family Services, and Union Gospel Mission, a homeless transition shelter. He brings experience in financial management and governance to these boards, as well as Rocketship Texas.

Why I support Rocketship: “Rocketship Texas is an innovative K-5 school system that will put high-achieving students and engaged parents back into the neighboring school district after they graduate from Rocketship. This will be the first step in no longer relying on the ‘safety net’ organizations’ I have been involved with for the past twenty-plus years.”
