Dutch Keel | profile
Dutch grew up in Morgantown, West Virginia. He graduated from Colgate University with a BA in Biology. While at Colgate, he participated in a study-away semester with Sea Education Association (SEA), based in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. At SEA, Dutch spent six weeks onshore in Woods Hole studying nautical science, oceanography, and maritime studies.
He went to sea aboard a 135-foot brigantine, the SSV Corwith Cramer, to put all this knowledge to practical use. He was hooked on sailing and after graduation, he got aboard the first boat he could. He met his wife, Annie, on a sailboat and they spent the next seven years in the sail training industry. Dutch spent most of his time with SEA aboard the vessels as a professional sailor and teacher sailing throughout the Western North Atlantic, Caribbean, and North Eastern Pacific.
After lots of adventuring, it was time to settle down. Valuing the sense of community one finds on a ship, they decided to enter the world of boarding schools. They were so pleased with the transition and the independent school philosophy. Dutch joined Trinity-Pawling in 2010 after teaching, coaching, and dorm parenting for six years at a boarding school in New Jersey. He was appointed the Dean of Residential Life in 2015 and continues to teach in the Science Department.
Dutch, his wife, Annie, their daughters, Elizabeth and Georgia, and big yellow dog, Jack live in Starr.
