Keith Potter

Keith began his pageantry career as a saxophone player and drum major for Center Grove High School in Greenwood, IN. After graduation, he became a drum major instructor at FJM clinics and later went on to join the Cadets of Bergen County as a member of the color guard from 1991-1993. He also performed with The Pride of Cincinnati and Escapade winter guards during this same time period.

Once wrapping up his performance career, Keith quickly turned to education and design and has been serving as a color guard or program designer, at some capacity, for over 28 years. His previous design work includes: Carroll High School, Center Grove High School, Avon High School, Carmel High School, The Pride of Cincinnati, The Cadets of Bergen County, The Cavaliers, and Escapade Winter Guard.

Currently, Keith is the Director and a Designer of Center Grove Color Guard while also serving as the Artistic Director of The Boston Crusaders. Potter, a graduate of Indiana University, lives in Indianapolis, IN with his 3 wonderful children and an amazing wife. While maintaining heavy involvement in the pageantry arts, Keith also built and learned valuable lessons from a 13-year career in the Architecture and Interior Design industry as an Account Executive in commercial wallcoverings, a Market Development Manager in commercial furniture, and eventually, as VP of Architecture and Design Sales for IdeaPaint, based out of Boston, MA. Two years ago, Keith (with family support) decided to make a go of a full-time pageantry design business, Keith Potter Design. It has been challenging but rewarding and Keith is now able to focus all of his energy into doing what he loves.
