Keil is a Great Bend native who attended Barton Community College and received a biology degree from Fort Hays State University. Prior to coming to the GBPD, he worked five summers with the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. “We’re very excited to have him here,” Haulmark said, noting his department is now fully staffed.
