David Robinson, a passionate education advocate, played 14 seasons as center for the San Antonio Spurs.
Before joining the NBA, Robinson attended the U.S. Naval Academy and served two years with the U.S. Navy.
David “The Admiral” Robinson, a 10-time NBA All Star, was a respected basketball player both on and off the court. In 2003, the NBA Commissioner said future winners of the NBA Community Assist Award would receive the David Robinson Plaque, with the inscription, "Following the standard set by NBA Legend David Robinson, who improved the community piece by piece," according to the NBA.
In 2001, Robinson made a large financial commitment toward the construction and operation of The Carver Academy, a private Christian school for San Antonio students.
The Carver Academy later partnered with IDEA Public Schools in 2012 to become the first IDEA public charter school campus in San Antonio.
Robinson now serves as an IDEA Public Schools San Antonio regional board member.
The Texas Charter Schools Conference is committed to advancing the
quality of public charter schools and improving student achievement through strengthening, motivating and collaborating with our Texas charter leaders.
