Dates of existence



Dorothy Helen Gray was born in Brantford, Manitoba on May 28, 1941 and spent her early years in Calgary and Toronto. She received degrees from the University of Alberta, a BEd in 1966 and an MEd in 1990. In 1979, Dorothy became a faculty member of Grant MacEwan Community College. During her time at MacEwan she was the recipient of both the MacEwan Medallion and the Emeritus Award.

During her professional career as an English instructor and following her retirement, she was actively involved in volunteering with the Students' Association, MacEwan Day and Open House. Passionate about local history, she maintained a close connection with Dr. J. W. Grant MacEwan and his family.

Following her death in February 6, 2012 at the Edmonton General Hospital, the Dorothy Gray Award was established to recognize a university employee who had demonstrated service and support to Students' Association programs, services and initiatives above and beyond their job requirements. In 2012 the Students' Association named the Gray Gallery, space for student art works, in her honour.
