The school was named after Chet Burchett, a member of the Spring ISD Board of Trustees for nine years beginning in 1993. In addition to his years as a board member, Mr. Burchett contributed to the District by volunteering time and leadership to the first Project Prom program at Westfield High School and establishing a Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter at Westfield. He may be best known as the “Voice of the Mustangs” for the commentary he provided while serving for seven years as the announcer for Westfield football games. The school opened in August of 2005. Mr. Burchett passed away in the spring of 2010.
