Tejas was saddened to learn of the passing of our long-time member, Donald E. Grace DTM on Christmas Eve after an eighteen-month battle with pancreatic cancer.  For many years Don Grace inspired and encouraged us through his example of service and through his concern  for the growth and progress of each of his fellow members.  A one-time football coach, Don was our coach par excellence.
 
Even while coping with the disease, Don showed a consistently sunny personality and a desire to serve others.  Only a year ago he served as a volunteer and mentor for the Speechcraft program we launched for English as a Second Language students at El Buen Samaritano mission. Don was consistently there, encouraging, advising, giving of himself. 
 
Recognizing Don's example of using his Toastmaster skills for the benefit of the community, Tejas last year established a special award in his name.  The Don Grace Award is to be given each year to the Tejas member who best demonstrates Don's spirit of community service.
