DCG Backs Scholarship for Army Public Affairs Professionals

At DCG, we believe in more than just business — we believe in giving back. That’s why we’re honored to announce our partnership with the Army Public Affairs Association (APAA) in creating the Donald Nathan Carr Memorial Scholarship for Public Affairs Excellence.

Donald Nathan Carr’s legacy in the public affairs and visual information community is one of dedication, excellence, and unwavering commitment to the Army and its storytellers. As a veteran-owned business, we resonate deeply with Carr’s values and his passion for nurturing the next generation of communicators.

The inaugural scholarship, set to award $500 to each recipient, aims to support professionals in advancing their careers in service to the Army and the nation. Whether pursuing online courses or attending in-person training, the scholarship provides a platform for growth and development.

Carr’s daughter, Ranee Elter, expressed her family’s gratitude, stating, “Words cannot express how much it means to us that this scholarship was created in his honor. We hope this scholarship continues my dad’s legacy by ensuring his dedication to his storytelling craft lives on.”

DCG’s Director and Program Manager, Tom McCuin, echoed this sentiment, highlighting our shared values of excellence and commitment. “We know this investment in the Army’s public affairs and visual information community will both honor Don’s legacy and ensure his brand of excellence is carried forward for generations to come.”

“We could not be more grateful for DCG’s support,” Rebecca Wriggle, president of the Army Public Affairs Association added. “This program is even possible because of DCG’s generous sponsorship which truly reflects their core values and corporate ethos. Our partnership with DCG will make a meaningful difference for Army public affairs and visual information professionals in the years ahead. In this way, we’ll make a meaningful difference together for Don’s beloved career field and for our Army.”
