George Matthews, #16200
George first came to Camp as a Cub in 1994 in time to experience Willie Schmidt’s final summer as Camp Director. George returned to Dudley for five subsequent summers as a Plebe, Junior, Senior, Aide, and Junior Leader. George’s first two summers at Camp were particularly formative and incredibly rewarding for him. “Camp is a rare place where young people have the opportunity and freedom to be themselves in an inclusive community that develops their character and leadership skills.” One of George’s only regrets about Camp was choosing to skip returning as a leader in 2001. George looks forward to deepening his connection to Dudley and Kiniya by serving on the Board of Trustees and helping to deliver the unique Camp experience to the next generation of campers.
George grew up in Buffalo, New York, and graduated from Brown University where some of his close friends were people whom he knew from Camp. George has spent his career in banking working with corporate, middle market, and institutional clients. He is a Vice President and Relationship Manager in Commercial Banking at EagleBank, a banking company headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland. George and his wife, Najla, live in Washington, D.C., where they enjoy spending time outdoors and in the company of their friends and family.
