About Dr. Gracy
Dr. David Bergen Gracy II was one of the founding members of the Austin ARMA Chapter, and in his passing has left behind a history and legacy within our association. Feeling the need to honor such a deep connection to the past, the Austin ARMA Board of Directors collectively agreed that a special and fitting tribute to Dr. Gracy for his dedication to ARMA and the record management profession would be a great way to keep his memory alive. With this intent in mind, the CRM/IGP Reimbursement Grant has been renamed to "The Dr. David Gracy II IGP/CRM Grant", in honor of our friend and colleague.
Dr. David Gracy served as the chapter's very first President and was a great contributor to the records management and archives world. Dr. Gracy mentored many present and past chapter members, sharing his insight with them. Dr. Gracys’ standards of service and excellence to our profession will continue to be an integral part of the Austin ARMA Chapter for years to come. We sincerely hope that this small gesture, the of naming the Dr. David Gracy II IGP/CRM Grant, will honor him and his legacy.
