Gray, who was an economics professor at DePauw University from 1965 through 1979. Gray, retired senior judge of the Putnam County Court, has been honored as the Putnam County Community Foundation's first-ever "Woman Philanthropist of the Year."

In a report on the award, Greencastle's Banner-Graphic notes that Gray "founded the local Prevention, Intervention and Education Coalition to fight substance abuse, and was also involved in the development of Putnam County's Community Corrections Office and Substance Abuse Treatment Program. She established an endowment at the foundation that provides financial support for local substance abuse treatments programs. For the past several years, Gray has been on East College 2005 1.jpgthe board of the Putnam County Museum.
